lp-generations-photoCelebrating this Mexican holiday traditionThe nine-day celebration known as Las Posadas (the inns) is a Mexican Christmas tradition that commemorates the story of the Nativity. Through candlelit processions, singing and faroles navideños (Christmas lanterns), communities gather together to pay homage to Mary and Joseph’s biblical journey to Bethlehem.From December 16-24 each year, friends, families and neighbors participate as innkeepers and host a Posada at a different home each night. The evening’s innkeeper provides traditional Las Posadas food—an essential element to the festivities. Sweet and savory tamales, cinnamon-chocolate champurrado and warm buñuelos are some of the many welcoming treats offered to guests.

As the night draws to an end, aguinaldos (small bags filled with treats and candies) are distributed as parting gifts to the guests of the inn for their celebratory “journey.”
