She’s not your ex-wife or mother-in-law; guess again. Yes, la LLorona! What do you know about her, the Weeping Woman? Read this article and find out the importance of La Llorona tale in Hispanic culture!

¡La LLorona es americana!

La Llorona has circulated through chilling myths and folklore among Hispanics across Latin America and the United States for over five hundred years.

Denied from entering heaven and forced to wander the Earth for eternity, searching for her drowned children, Llorona is caught between the spirit world and the living.

¡Incomparable belleza americana!

Legend states that a beautiful young, poor woman named Maria was taken in by a wealthy nobleman traveling through her village. He fell in love with her otherworldly beauty and married her.

After years of him traveling, and falling out of love with her, one day Maria saw her husband riding a carriage with another beautiful woman.

And you thought you had it bad!

So distraught, angry and confused she grabbed her two children and threw them into the river, drowning them.

When she saw their lifeless bodies floating, she realized what she had done. She jumped into the river hoping to die with them but lived.

Now as a spirit, she spends eternity looking for her children in the river. Legend states that if you hear her weeping, you must run the opposite way and that if you can hear her, it can bring misfortune and death.

¡El lamento de la Llorona!

“Lamento cuando la miento”, I regret when I mention her name. That’s why it is better not to say her name aloud. Those who mentioned her name have died. And those who have claimed to see her say that she appears at night or in the late evening by rivers.

She is noted as crying out, “¡Ay mis hijos!” It’s said that when her crying sounds are near she is far and when they are distant she is very close. Better check your surroundings right now!

Do you get to hear anything unusual? ¨¡Ay mis hijos! ¿Dónde están mis hijos?,” Run for your life, now!

Llorona: A Haunting Encounter

A haunting encounter yes, but not a hotty encounter—maybe a weepy or eerie encounter? If you do see her, it won’t be the first time.

La Llorona was potentially seen and videotaped in Mexico City as a mysterious figure in the middle of an intersection one day on September 18, 2016. She is seen standing still while cars move directly in her path.

At least if you hit a ghost you can’t be charged for manslaughter! Besides wandering in the city streets of Mexico, La Llorona is also known to haunt areas in the United States like Santa Fe.

La Llorona’s Hide & Seek!

In Peru, kids play a scary version of hide and seek where the seeker plays La Llorona and calls after the hiders screaming, “¿Dónde están mis hijos?,” which means “where are my children?” Or else, ¿quién me ha quitado mis hijos? (Who has taken away my children?)

Legend states that those who don’t treat their family well will be paid a visit by her. She will bring death, doom, and fear into her victims. Words of advice: Bring your wife flowers and tell your mother you love her.

Will You Survive Her Spell?

One lady even had a personal encounter with La Llorona when she was a little girl. She was talking to her boyfriend and felt an icy chill. She was paralyzed, frozen in place.

With her phone in her hand, lying on the bed, she saw the apparition in the doorway. Staring. The ghost, dressed in all white, wouldn’t allow her to move and just stared at her. She lived to tell her tale, at least; but will you?

La Llorona in Pop Culture!

Besides the oral tales, numerous stories, books, movies, and paintings depicting La Llorona have circulated for centuries.

Many of these tales within the legend of the weeping woman are quite terrifying and have the potential to haunt you and your children, causing lasting nightmares.
