December 12 is an important day for Catholics.  Every year in Mexico City the Basilica of Guadalupe is the most visited Catholic pilgrimage site in the world.

For the Mexican people and Latinos, Virgen de Guadalupe or Virgen de las Americas is part of their culture and is celebrated almost around the world. Usually, children dress as pilgrims to bring roses to the Virgen. Mariachi bands play "Las Mañanitas" to La Virgen as a celebration of her existence.
