Often referred to as Latinx Heritage Month, Hispanic Heritage Month officially begins on the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries – Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua – all of which declared national sovereignty in 1821. In addition, Mexico, Chile, and Belize celebrate their independence on September 16, 18, and 21 respectively.
