What do you think is the most significant event in Hispanic heritage and why?

"I think Cinco De Mayo is the most important day because that's the day we celebrate our cultural independence. I think celebrating Hispanic heritage is very important especially in North America. When I go back home to Mexico, it's the only way I celebrate my heritage." (translated)
