!Feliz Navidad! and Las Posadas - December 16 - 24


Feliz Navidad plays while pictures depicting the Mexican tradition of Las Posadas flash on the screen.

Las Posadas (Spanish for "the inns") is a nine-day celebration with origins in Spain beginning December 16 and ending December 24.

It is a yearly tradition for many Catholic Mexicans and some other Latin Americans and symbolizes the trials which Mary and Joseph endured before finding a place to stay where Jesus could be born.
