National Hispanic Heritage Month


FOX40 is proud to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, beginning September 15th to October 15th.
It spans two calendar months because various
Latin American countries and Mexico
celebrate their independence on different dates throughout this time period.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence days on September 16, 18, and 21 respectively.

FOX40 and Just Better salute the cultural contributions and positive influences made by American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
