Day 4 : Virgin a Day

When I lived in Isla, this spectacular display was right around the corner  from mi casa.
I loved the celebratory feeling of this joyful Virgin 
adorned with her festive colors in the bright, warm sunshine!
It made me smile every time I walked by! It includes all the festive colors of Mexico, green frog luck for health and happiness, and all the bling the holidays can bring!
and I can't resist sharing with you the photos of my next door neighbors as they came to my gate singing carols carrying the traditional decorated tree branch "baculos"

For more Virgin Goodness, come over here!

I say we should have more of colorful statues everywhere we go! Fill our lives with such bright energy! That image put a big smile on my face too and the children put an even bigger smile! It sounds like it was a life changing trip.
