This week, join in one of the region's oldest continuing traditions during Our Lady of Guadalupe Fiesta events. The celebrations, always on
December 10, 11 and 12, include a mountain pilgrimage on Tortugas ("A")
Mountain here in Las Cruces, masses, a candlelight procession, feasting
and Danzante and Matachine dancers performing traditional dances.
My painting below depicts a group of dancers of the
Piro-Manso-Tiwa Tribe of Guadalupe Pueblo during the annual
Virgin de Guadalupe Feast Day Celebration last year.

We're told that the weather will turn cold tonight, so Lucie and I
had a nice long walk this morning.
We have enjoyed the balmy, sunny weather the past several weeks.....
but it is, after all, December.
(You've noticed there isn't much "walk" to Lucie's walks....you're right!)
Coming up.......Posadas, Los Pastores, posole, and more.......
