Las Mañanitas is the Most Majestic Celebration We Went to As Kids

If you’re Mexican and/or Catholic, you remember all of this…

Waking up super early…like 5 a.m. early.

Every girl’s dream ?????.

The highlight was probably watching her get serenaded by beautiful mariachi music.

So much passion.

And who can forget the Aztec dancers and the smell of incense that filled the church?

This was probably the only time you saw them perform.

So beautiful.
