    Guadalupe Reyes.
    AA-CENTRALES-GUADALUPEVirgen-en-altar-para-foto-del-recuerdo.jpg
    By Jesús Aguado.

    Hold on, Guadalupe Reyes is not a person! Nor is there a bridge by that name. What it represents, instead, is a period that encompasses 26 continuous festivals. It starts on December 12, the festival of Guadalupe, and continues through Three Kings Day on January 6. First of all is the celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe, also known as the Virgin of Tepeyac and Guadalupana.

    And yes, fireworks are part of the season, as is loud music that begins at 11pm on December 11, and the singing of las mañanitas to the Virgin of Guadalupe in almost every part of San Miguel or where we can find a shrine dedicated to her like the one in Mercado Ignacio Ramírez. It is a grand celebration, as over and above being Mexicans, Mexicans are Guadalupanos. The Virgin of Guadalupe is the patron saint of taxi drivers, merchants, and workers, just to name a few. You just need to pay attention to the walls of civil buildings, the niches of churches, the aisles of markets, the dashboards of trailer trucks. The Virgin of Guadalupe is everywhere—she is the mother and queen of Mexico.
