My name is Melina Alfaro and I'm a part of the Casa Sauza team. In this blog, I will tell you about the History of Mexico, specifically about what happened on September 15th, 1810 and the way we celebrate this date at Sauza.
A little Bit of History
On September the 16th, 1810, the Mexican Independence, which would lead to the end of the ruling of Mexico by Spainards, started. This event fostered a great passion in Mexican people and got one of the most important celebrations of our Country started.
This celebration that takes place during the night of September the 15th, when we Mexicans commemorate the anniversary of the beginning of the fight for our independence. The celebration revolves around the so-called "grito" ( the "cry/calling" -for independence) that is given at the most important cities and plazas (open congregation places) of the country. The Grito commemorates the calling that the priest, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla made on the the dawn of September 16th, when the bells of the church of the Dolores Hidalgo town rang, calling people to rise up against Spanish rule.
And although, as already mentioned, the grito of independence was given during the early hours of September 16, it was established that the commemoration would take place on the night of September 15 “to avoid the fatigue of waking up at an early hour to celebrate this event”, as mentioned in the book El Palacio Nacional de México.
