Hispanic Heritage Month: Honoring Hispanics in the Military

While Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep. 15 – Oct. 15) is a tradition of recognizing the many ways Hispanics have positively influenced U.S. society, we’d like to pay special tribute to those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Learn the role Hispanics have had in our military, and how the heritage and culture contributes to the growing number of Hispanics fighting to defend, protect, and secure our freedom.

January 6th brings a second Christmas for Hispanic Americans (Three Kings Day)

In Spain, the spirit of generosity and joy, popularly represented in America by Santa, manifests itself in the visit of the Three Wise Men. Often, entire neighborhoods commune together, with extended family and even co-workers gathering for vibrant parades, street carnivals, and caroling. Epiphany’s celebration truly highlights the profound spirituality and community bonds considered so important to the Spanish culture.
