Mexico is second only to Brazil in the number of Catholic citizens in the world. Mexico introduced chocolate, corn, and chilies to the world

Spain was an oppressive country over Mexico, and the European country did not let the Mexican people live independently from the laws that governed Spain. The Spanish king pushed for the Mexican people to live in a lower social class, and the Spanish army that ran the city was prejudice against the people of Mexico. The Mexican people grew tired of the oppression, the political offices, the monopolies and the modernization set by Spain, and enforced by the Spanish army.

On September 16, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, launched the Mexican War of Independence. In 1821, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla ordered the arrest of all of the Spanish people that lived in the city of Dolores. Mexico's official Independence Day is on Friday 16 September 2016.
