The Independence Day is the great holiday for Mexicans, it is celebrated on the 16-th of September. It is interesting that the first celebrations usually start on the 15-th of September, before the holiday. It is considered that such a tradition is connected with the honoring the memory of Saint Porphirius.
Before the independence announcement Mexico was the colony of Spain. When in 19-th century Spain was occupied by French people, Mexico became French possession. The local citizens rose to fight with the occupiers. The main leader of the liberation struggle was Padre Idalgo: it was verily him who in the morning of the 16-th of September 1810 called for the rebellion with the church bell sounds.
In general, the fight for independence had been lasting for 11 years in the country; it was finished well for Mexicans. On the 29-th of September, 1921 Mexico officially announced its independence, but in the calendar of holidays of the country the Independence Day is celebrated as the beginning of rebellion, not its end.
