Mexico, once known as New Spain, was a colony harshly ruled by the kingdom of Spain for over 300 years. The native population was oppressed, farmland and personal wealth were confiscated and only Spaniards were allowed to hold political posts.

After many years of oppression a catholic priest in the town of Dolores named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla had enough.

So, on September 16, 1810, he rang his church’s bell and delivered a speech now known as the Grito de Dolores (Cry of Dolores), demanding the end of Spanish rule. This started the brutal Mexican War of Independence, which lasted over a decade.

Then on August 24, 1821, Spain withdrew and officially recognized Mexico as an independent country.

This will be Mexico's first full-fledged Independence Day celebration since COVID-19 dampened the 2020 event.

People responded with glee, wearing green, white and red paint and bushy fake mustaches.

OCP DE MEXICO Will also be celebrating this day with interesting conversations about the history of Mexico's independence day. We will enjoy a wonderful day together.

Our children will also be celebrating with dancing performances and customary outfits at school and day care!
