Holidays: Our Lady of Guadalupe Day

Today is Our Lady of Guadalupe Day

Mexico's largest and most important religious holiday, Our Lady of Guadalupe Day is observed annually on December 12.

Many Mexicans make a pilgrimage on this day to the chapel on Tepayac Hill in Mexico City, where the mother of Jesus is said to have appeared before an Indian peasant named Juan Diego from December 9, 1531 through December 12, 1531.
