Monday, March 19

¡Feliz cumpleaños Josefina!

Happy birthday Josefina!

Instead of celebrating her birthday, Josefina celebrates the feast day of San José, the saint for whom she was named.

San José, or San Jose, is Spanish for St. Joseph.

March 19 has been the principal feast day of St. Joseph in Western Christianity since the 10th century and is celebrated by Roman Catholics, Anglicans, and many other denominations.

(Josefina's 15th birthday might be a Quinceañera, which is celebrated differently from any other birthday because it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. The celebration in some countries is more religious than in others.)
