Benito Juarez' birthday

Celebrated on the 3rd Monday of March

A federal holiday – government offices, banks and most schools are closed.  Benito Juarez served as president of Mexico from 1858-1872, a whopping 5 terms.   He is known for being a reformer dedicated to equal rights, national sovereignty, and democracy.  He is also the only Mexican president of 100% indigenous (Zapotec) ancestry, and his motto was  “Entre los individuos, como entre las naciones, el respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz” which means “Among individuals, as among nations, respect for the rights of others is peace.”
