Dimelo: Fun Facts You Never Knew About Hispanic Heritage Month!


Happy Hispanic Heritage Month, Dimelo readers!

Last week I told you all about me and my Heritage Month Virgin-ness. I'm new to celebrating the month recognizing the histories, cultures, and contributions of Latino Americans (and I'm not ashamed to admit it). Now that I'm here, though, it's guns blazin' on learning (and sharing) all I can in the my online column series devoted to All Things Latino American.

Right now, I'm in my happy place browsing the Scholastic website devoted to the Hispanic Heritage Month. Have you checked it out yet? Even if you don't have kids, I'm betting you don't know all of the cool bits of trivia the site provides. (If you do, I highly suggest you get yourself on a game show ahora mismo and thank me when you win by inviting me along for your celebratory cruise. No? Okay...moving on!)
