Did You Know?
Based on a legend in parts Mexico, southwest United States, and Puerto Rico. Though several versions of the legend of "La Llorona" exist, the basis is that a woman named Maria drowns her children in order to be with a man she loved dearly. The man would not have her, therefore devastating her. Not taking "no" for an answer, she drowns herself in a lake in Mexico. When she reaches Heaven, she is challenged about the whereabouts of her children. Not being able to meet the challenge, she was unable to enter the afterlife, and is doomed to forever search for her children on Earth. Unable to find them, she is heard weeping, hence giving her the name "La Llorona". or "The Weeping Woman". Some variations of the story state that Maria will kidnap children who resemble her own, and others put her as a "nursery bogey", as a threat to disobedient children. Witnesses who claim to see La Llorona always claim to see her on the banks and shores of rivers, lakes, and oceans in Mexico. Some versions of the legend warn that hearing her wails would portend imminent death, similar to the legend of the banshee in parts of Ireland. See more
