Each year, Americans celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. In 1968, President Lyndon Johnson started the tradition of celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. President Ronald Reagan officially enacted it into a law in the late 1980’s. Since then, Americans have spent the month celebrating the food, music, art and overall contributions Hispanics have made to our country.
