Every December, many Catholics honor The Virgin of Guadalupe. People native to Mexico and the southwest celebrate in a variety of ways. Some traditional groups sing ancient Aztec songs all through the night, and dance throughout the next day as a way to honor the Virgin, which they interpret as Mother Earth. One San Antonio family and their community members held their ceremony last Friday night. 

Hundreds of people were in and out of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church that night. 

A holiday event is happening downtown on Saturday night, and the people putting it on are looking for your help. It's called the Handel's Messiah Community Sing Along.
