September is the month of national holidays in México, and with them come the “garnachas”, the tricolor ornaments and the music of mariachi, band and cumbia that can be heard in every house. There, families and friends gather to enjoy the banquet in honor of national independence, conquered more than 200 years ago but which results still matter.
The memories of the insurgent struggle are now perceived very far away, when the Mexican society, influenced by the French revolution and other independence movements in the world, decided to organize and conspire against the Spanish crown.
The struggle for independence was a violent event that lasted more than 10 years. However, the need for autonomy reflected the political maturity of Mexican society. The history of Mexico is full of illustrious characters who created the first political constitution in 1821 under the yearning for sovereignty. These are the main reasons why the beginning of the struggle for independence marks a crucial date for Mexicans. This celebration commemorates their first steps as an independent nation, the power to freely decide their government and above all, reaffirming their crossbreed identity, which is a product of the relationship between peninsular and Creole Spaniards, blacks and mulattos, as well as indigenous people from different regions of the territory.
This context is important for those who suddenly get involved with the celebration of September 15th in Mexico. It is a date that represents unification, in which people take pride to call themselves Mexicans, and that makes them feel in the need to splurge between feasts, fireworks and industrial quantities of tequila around the national symbols.
