It’s now one of the most important date for the country. Thousands of the faithful from around the country make the most important pilgrimage to the ‘Basílica of Guadalupe’, in Mexico City, where the miraculous image of the ‘Virgen Morena’ is kept.
Over the 11th to the 12th December 2009, a record number of 6.1 million pilgrims visited the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico to commemorate the anniversary of the apparition.
Some of the pilgrims arrive on their knees as a sign of their enormous devotion and gratitude for a favor received. There are many groups of dancers and musicians that have come to offer their art to the Virgin. By nighttime, the atrium is filled to bursting with pilgrims. People of all ages and of all regions of the country gather together, physically as well as spiritually.
In some parts of the country, children in costumes roam the streets, knocking on people\'s doors for a ‘calaverita’, a small gift of candies or money. This custom is similar to that of Halloween\'s trick-or-treating.
