About this event

This year let's join our Mexican friends and neighbors who celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12th.  We will drive from Boulder (carpooling) at 4:30 a.m to La Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe) Denver, where there will be traditional singing and dancing, and, if we are lucky, Mariachi (trompetas, guitarras, etc.) https://ologdenver.org/. The church is located just west of Interstate 25 at W. 34th Avenue.

From Wikipedia: Las Mañanitas is a traditional Mexican birthday song sung in Mexico and other Latin American countries at birthday parties, usually early in the morning to awaken the birthday person, also before eating cake, and especially as part of the custom of serenading women. In Mexico, Las Mañanitas is sung to men and women of all ages. In some countries, such as Colombia, the song is only sung to girls, especially on their 15th birthday.

To really learn to speak Spanish we must immerse ourselves in the cultures of those who speak it!
