Independence Day is one of the most patriotic day across the world. Its a day to remember the blessings and boons showered upon the citizens by their motherland. The Mexican Independence Day falls on  September 16. Its celebrated with great glory across the country. It was the day in which the war that led to the country’s independence began and started a revolt against the Spaniards. Finally, the independence of Mexico was achieved on September 27, 1821.

It all began when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a priest, uttered what is called the “Grito de Dolores” or “Cry of Dolores,” from the small town of Dolores near Guanajuato and the essence of the message was to encourage Mexicans to free themselves, recover the stolen lands byfrom the Spaniards and defend their rights. In the early morning of September 16, 1810, Hidalgo ordered the church bells to be rung and gathered his congregation where he addressed the people in front of his church, encouraging them to revolt. The Siege of Guanajuato, the first major engagement of the insurgency, occurred 4 days later. Hence, since October 1825, the anniversary of the event is celebrated as Mexican Independence Day. Also since the late 20th century, Hidalgo y Costilla’s "cry of independence" has become emblematic of Mexican independence. 

The celebrations begin on the night of September 15 and carry on to the next day. In Mexico City, thousands congregate in the Z√≥calo, or main square, on the night of the 15th to hear the President ring the same bell that Hidalgo did and recite the Grito de Dolores. Mexicans celebrate this with fireworks, parties, food, dance and music. Flags, flowers and decorations in the colors of the Mexican flag – red, white and green – are seen in public areas in cities and towns in Mexico. Whistles and horns are blown and confetti is thrown to celebrate this festive occasion. "Viva Mexico" or "Viva la independencia” are shouted amidst the crowds on this day.
