Dec. 12 -Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe

You can't live in Arizona without being aware of Mexican festivals.
Today Mexicans celebrate the Festivities of
Our lady of Guadalupe.

Although Christmas officially starts on December 16th with Posadas; journeys to the church. In Mexico these occur nightly.

Here in Puerta Vallarta, young Mexican girls ride the floats as Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Young Mexican boys dress as their Indian ancestors
and march in the Posada.

These are held nightly until Christmas in the towns and Villages of Mexico.

For several years we joined
other tourists in participating in this celebration.

December is a special month to visit Mexico.
