Mexico to Celebrate Independence Over Four Months From Now On Independence Day


MEXICO CITY, MEXICO–Mexicans and Mexican-Americans are set to once again celebrate their proud history and independence from the Spanish colonial government as they do every year on September 16th, which is just over four months from now.

To be clear, although people of Mexican heritage the world over would certainly join in celebration of their proud history on any day of the year, it is certain that when Hidalgo ordered the church bells to be rung in Dolores Hidalgo Cuna de la Independencia Nacional, not one gatherer held aloft a bottle of Corona.

And, just to re-iterate, the day was September 16th. Which is over four months from now.
