Photoblog: Celebrating the Virgin of Guadalupe in Antigua on 12 December

Just after the Burning of the Devil and the Virgin of La Concepcion, Antigua is celebrating the Virgin of Guadalupe on December 12th. The Virgin of Guadalupe is the patron of America. On this day, the kids from all ages wear traditional indigenous dress and carry the image of the virgin in procession. The tradition originated from Mexico and was brought in Guatemala in 1580.
