Las Posadas (Pre-Christmas Festivities)

December 16, 2015 - December 24, 2015

The Christmas holiday, one of the biggest fiestas of the year, is celebrated from December 16-24 (9 days) with parties, processions and nacimientos (nativity scenes). Parties, known as posadas, re-enact Mary and Joseph’s search for shelter in Bethlehem. The main Christmas celebration is a traditional family dinner on Christmas Eve, followed by Midnight Mass.

Las Posadas (Pre-Christmas Festivities) is considered a religious holiday/festivity day, not a state holiday.
