La Posada is a community-based reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Posada festivities traditionally begin on December 16th and continue through January 5th. In this reenactment, a procession with lit candles and seasonal songs approach the doors of three houses. Together, participants sing and awaken the master of each house to ask for lodging. Those within the first two houses deny them entry. The third house warmly welcomes the guests after learning their identity. A musical fiesta ensues with traditional food, drink, and a piñata for the children.
