UN Spanish Language Day
Top 10 Spanish-speaking travel destinations
Within the context of the UN Spanish Language Day, the UNESCO celebrates the Spanish language since 2010 every year on 12 October. This day is intended to promote the multilingualism and cultural diversity of the UN staff and pay tribute to the Spanish language, culture and history. Spanish is one of the six official languages of the UN and spoken worldwide by over 440 million people. However, not only the UN itself is celebrating this day, but also all the Spanish-speaking countries and regions in which this is usually a national holiday. In many Latin American countries the day celebrated as "Día de la Raza" (Day of the Race), in Spain it is called "Día de la Hispanada" and even in the USA this day is a public holiday, known as "Columbus Day".
Columbus? Yes exactly! The 12 October 1492 was the day on which Christoph Columbus, an Italian explorer and navigator who sailed under the Spanish crown, discovered the Americas. This day is widely considered as the starting point for the worldwide spread of the Spanish language and culture, with North America, Central America and South America being the most important representatives.
