Virgen de Guadalupe. She is the patron saint of Mexico commonly seen... well... everywhere pretty much. Venerated and celebrated year round but also gets a day dedicated solely to her, December 12th. If you happen to be driving on the rural roads of the Yucatan during the days leading up to the 12th, you’ll notice large Virgin statues strapped to the top of cars or on the backs of bicyclists or even runners doing a kind of relay race holding a lit torch. They call these people “peregrinos,” on a pilgrammage from one town to the next showing their deep devotion for the virgin.
