Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe

Virgen de Guadalupe
On the 12 of December, Guatemalans join the Mexican celebration of the Virgen de Guadalupe.

The Virgen de Guadalupe is probably Mexico´s most venerated deity. The mythology tells that Virgin Mary materialized to the indegenous Chichimecan Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin and the image of the virgin became engraved on Diego´s clothing.
To commemorate this event, ladinos from Mexico and Guatemala dress their children as indigenous people and processions of the virgin take place in many towns.
