Guadalupe Day in Mexico

By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
1     December 12 is a very important day in Mexico. That is because almost all Mexican people are Catholics. It is called Guadalupe Day.
 
2     Guadalupe Day honors the Virgin Mary. Christians believe that she was the mother of Jesus. Catholics in Mexico believe that the Virgin Mary appeared to a man named Juan Diego and talked to him.
 
3     The story took place more than 450 years ago. Juan Diego was a poor native Mexican. One day he was walking by a rocky hill not far from Mexico City. Suddenly, he saw a woman standing on the hill. She was surrounded by bright light. She told him that she was the mother of God. She told him she wanted a shrine in her honor to be built on the hill.
