Paraguay is a result of its ethnic diversity. Since the early ages, the native Paraguayans developed relations with the immigrants and then gave birth to modern-day Paraguay. Since 1811 May 15, Paraguay celebrates its Independence Day.
Before the Spanish colonization, native Paraguayans have lived in the country for over 1000 years. The Invasion changed the face of Paraguay and it strongly affected the culture and traditions of the country.
