Do you ever see people with these bracelets?
Many, many Mexican people or Spanish speaking people wear these bracelets showing their devotion to the Lady of Guadalupe ( the virgin Mary) The images on the bracelet represent different incarnations of her.
Interestingly enough, a lot of other people are wearing these bracelets as they have become very popular- a fad if you will. Many of these people are not Mexican or Catholic. many do not know who the Lady of Guadalupe is!
At the last lacrosse tournament I had a basket of Lady bracelets left over from a Catholic fundraiser and I was amazed to find girls going crazy over these bracelets. I sold out right away!
I think it is a positive phenomenom when fads or traditions from other cultures cross over to the masses.
Do you have this bracelet? If so, is there a story or an interesting reason?
I am curious, let me know :)
