Virgin of Guadalupe Day

There’s something special about the way Mexicans venerate Mary.
Before the midnight Mass, they sing and talk to her as if it were her birthday and she were a favorite friend, sister, aunt. It’s poignantly personal and eloquent in its simplicity. The music and lyrics could be compared to gospel music but with a much more contained and uniquely Mexucan style.
