December 16 to 24 – Las Posadas

Candlelight processions wind their way to a different host’s home each evening, where guests will enjoy music, treats and piñatas. Repeated each night until Christmas Eve.

Posada is Spanish for “lodging”, or “accommodation”; it is said in plural because it is celebrated more than one day in that period. The nine-day novena represents the nine months of pregnancy, specifically the pregnancy of Mary carrying Jesus.

The procession has been a tradition in Mexico for 400 years.
