Popocatépetl y Iztaccíhuatl: (The Lovers): -
Before leaving for war, Popocatépetl asked Iztaccíhuatl’s father for permission to marry her. Shortly after, a rival of Popocatépetl falsely told Iztaccíhuatl that her love been killed in battle. The princess died of grief from this news. Popocatépetl returned victorious but was shocked by the princess’s death. To honor her, he ordered a tomb to be built close to the sun. Ten hills were united to create a mountain. Popocatépetl laid the princess’s body at the mountaintop, and the whole mountain took on the form of a sleeping woman. Then as the warrior kneeled before his lost love, snow covered them, and they both transformed into volcanoe.
Mexican Folklore: “La Llorona” (“The Weeping Woman”) -
a beautiful woman by the name of Maria who drowns her children in order to be with the man that she loved. The man would not have her, which devastated her. She would not take no for an answer, so she drowned herself in a river in Mexico City. Challenged at the gates of Heaven as to the whereabouts of her children, she is not permitted to enter the afterlife until she has found them. Maria is forced to wander the Earth for all eternity, searching in vain for her drowned offspring, with her constant weeping giving her the name “La Llorona.” She is trapped in between the living world and the spirit world.
Someone is dancing on my grave
Sending shivers down my spine.
I hear a laugh, it awoke my soul

Dear friends, followers and readers:
My family’s in crisis right now. My dad’s currently sick in the hospital, my mom’s working hard to pay off his medical and hospital bills, two of my three sisters are the only ones who are working abroad right now while the other is taking care of my dad, and I’m trying to help them by doing this.
Please help us raise money for my dad’s medical expenses for his AML treatment and other hospital bills.
