Mexican Independence Day

Date When Celebrated : September 16th

Mexican Independence Day celebrates Mexico's Independence from Spain. Like the U.S. Independence Day, this day is celebrated in Mexico with parades, fiestas, fireworks, and picnics.

Mexican Independence Day History:

In 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo of Dolores, Mexico was planning a revolt to free the country from Spanish rule. On September 15, 1810 at 11:00 pm, Father Hidalgo rang his church bell to call his parishioners, and rally them to fight off Spanish rule. He then made a speech to his congregation, and the fight for freedom began.

Today, Mexican people mark this very special holiday, by repeating the ringing of the bells at 11:00 pm on the 15th. It is followed by a day of celebrations on the 16th.

Viva Mexico!  Have a happy Mexican Independence Day!
