Our Lady of Guadalupe

Russ purchased this bracelet for me in Mexico when we visited Tulum, the pre-Columbian Maya walled city along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea.

Trivia: On December 12, before the Christmas season "officially" begins on December 16, Mexicans join together for the festivities of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is one of the most important dates in the Mexican calendar. Las Posadas, Spanish for "The Inns", is a nine-day celebration with origins in Mexico beginning December 16th and ending December 24th.
