Vamos a la feria

One of the many great gatherings during the Christmas season in Mexico happens around the feria or fair (although it is interesting that the Spanish meaning of the word differs from the French etymological meaning and English usage in that in Hispanic American cultures, feria means a holiday, religious function, and fair, whereas in Anglo American cultures it is solely associated with the selling and buying of goods and not related to religious festivities or holidays). These photos are from the feria held in honor of the Virgen de Guadalupe, whose holiday was just celebrated last week, on December 12th.
