Day of Lady of Guadalupe (Mexico)

Day of Lady of Guadalupe is a religious festival in Mexico, and it is observed on December 12 each year.

Day of Lady of Guadalupe celebrates the time when the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared to a man named Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531.

According to the legend, the Virgin Mary appeared to Juan Diego on December 9, 1531 and asked him to build her a shrine on Tepeyac Hill, the spot she had appeared. The local bishop asked Juan Diego to provide a miracle that the Virgin Mary had appeared. The Virgin Mary appeared again on December 12 and told him to pick roses on Tepeyac Hill even it was in winter.

Juan Diego collected the roses in his cloak and showed the bishop dozens of roses. The bishop was surprised by the miracle and ordered to build the Shrine on Tepeyac Hill.
