Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15th to October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month. How are you going to celebrate?

Find events in D.C. and nationwide

Read a book by a Latino/a author – recommendations for all ages (You can also check out books I recommend by clicking “LIBROS” up at the top of the page.)

Discover some new music.

Eat something! (My vote is for Julia’s Empanadas if you’re in the DC Metro area.)

Watch a movie. (My new favorite right now is Quinceñera.)

Don’t forget about documentaries. I usually catch these on T.V. The best one I ever stumbled upon was Compadre. If you ever have the opportunity to see it – SEE IT. Ya te dije.

Support the DREAM Act and Immigration Reform!

Take up a Zumba class, or check locally for other Latin Dance classes. I took classes earlier this year and loved it.

Support the creation of The National Museum of the American Latino.

Learn to speak Spanish – (totally free, and totally awesome. I’ve tried this website myself and it is top quality.)

And my favorite way to celebrate? Kiss a Latino :) (But this one is mine, get your own.)


Not enough ideas?
Check out Sofrito For Your Soul – they’ll have a tip every day for the next month for how you can celebrate! ModernMami.com also has a lot of great links.

Lastly, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Surropa.com is again offering 15% off to my readers! They have a new section of Hispanic Heritage T-shirts. Check them out and if you see one you like, use the coupon code “latinaish” to get your discount. Offer expires Oct. 15th, 2010.
