Posadas

On December 16, Mexico begins a nine-day celebration known as “Las Posadas,” an important tradition for many Catholic Mexicans. This celebration reenacts the trials Mary and Joseph endured before finding a place for Jesus to be born. Families take turns holding the Posada in their home while the remaining adults and children act as pilgrims, walking from house to house carrying candles and singing, looking for somewhere to stay. At each house, the resident rejects the pilgrims through song. The weary pilgrims continue from house to house until they reach the pre-designated place where the Posada is being held. Mary and Joseph are finally recognized and allowed to enter. And the celebration begins!
