Dia de la Raza (Octubre 12) Día de la raza ocurre anualmente el 12 de octubre. Es el día para celebrar la llegada de Colón al nuevo mundo--no porque América Latina quiere celebrar a Colón, sino porque el viaje condujo a la mezcla de razas, creando las familias y las culturas que tenemos ahora. Dia de la Raza es celebrada por el nombre del día de Colón en Estados Unidos, día del descubrimiento en las Bahamas y Fiesta Nacional de España.

TRANSLATION:

A Celebration of Race (October 12) Day of the Race is the English translation of the holiday called Dia de la Raza, which happens annually on October 12. Dia de la Raza is the day to celebrate the coming of Columbus to the new world -- not because Latin America wants to celebrate Columbus, but because the voyage led to the blending of races, creating the families and cultures we have now. Dia de la Raza is celebrated by the name Columbus Day in the United States, Discovery Day in the Bahamas, and Fiesta Nacional in Spain.
