         According to www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 - Oct. 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

         The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period. It was enacted into law on Aug. 17, 1988 on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
