Ori’Zaba’s is again proud to celebrate national Hispanic Heritage Month.
Our recipes are rich in Hispanic flavors, originating from Mt Ori’Zaba’s, near Mexico City. And many of our staff are to be recognized for their rich Hispanic culture.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15, when we recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino American’s heritage and culture, celebrating the customs and achievements of those with Hispanic descendants.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18.
What’s the difference between Hispanic and Latino?
They are often used interchangeably, but in general terms:
• “Latino” refers to people of Latin American origin, including Brazil (excluding Spain) and focuses more on the geographic region of Latin America.
• “Hispanic” is determined by whether your family speaks the Spanish language.
