Las Posadas History and Celebration

Las Posadas (translated in English as “the inns”), is a 9-day Mexican Christmas tradition based on the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph and their search of a safe place, or “inn,” to stay before the birth of Jesus. 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 host family 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.”
