Arab American Heritage Month is the month of April. An Arab American is a U.S. citizen, or permanent resident, who immigrated from, or who traces their ancestry to Arabic-speaking parts of the Middle East.
A few Arabic-speaking countries are Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.
Some ways you can celebrate Arab-American Heritage Month are visiting museums, eating Arabic dishes, coloring mosaic coloring pages, sending care packages to friends and family with products from Arab-owned small businesses, donating to charities that support the Arab community, and watching Arabic movies.
