About Our Lady of Guadalupe Day

The day is particularly special for Americans of Mexican heritage, as it honors the belief that Jesus' mother Mary, who is Mexico's patron saint, appeared to a man in Mexico City twice in 1531. Mexican Americans make up over 10% of the US population, with about 33.5 million Americans being listed as being of full or partial Mexican ancestry, according to the US Census Bureau 2011.
