Here Are A Few Products To Show Your Love For La Virgen de Guadalupe
Once a year on Dec. 12, Guadalupanos gather all over the world to honor their patron, La Virgen de Guadalupe. In Mexico City, the Basílica of Guadalupe hosts thousands of devotees to throw what is probably the biggest party for la morenita complete with dozens of indigenous dancers, the most celebrated Mexican singers and only the best mariachis. Across the U.S. there are hundreds of mañanitas that take place on a smaller scale, but still as touching. Regardless of where people attend, attendees show up to these celebrations wearing their favorite pieces with the Virgen de Guadalupe. If you are a believer but don’t own any pieces with La Virgen on them, here are a few you can purchase from our mitú Shop.
