Come to enjoy our Mexican Christmas celebration. Posada parties are filled with cheerful socializing, music, and fun for the entire family, including special Christmas drink and piñatas filled with candy. We're holding some interesting workshops too!
As part of the Christmas celebration, traditional fiestas called Mexican posadas (inns) are held for family, friends, and neighbors. Traditionally posadas are a celebration of the Christmas story. They take place on nine nights from December 16th to the 24th and commemorate the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph’s search for a place to stay where Jesus could be born.
Although primarily a religious holiday, Mexican posadas always offer an opportunity to enjoy a fiesta in true Mexican fashion. Posada parties are also filled with cheerful socializing, music, and fun for the entire family, including a special Christmas drink and piñatas filled with candy.
Today almost any party held around Christmastime is called a posada. Schools often host posadas as end-of-the-year parties for students and teachers.
We're holding workshops for crafting christmas piñatas and presenting christmas carols and nativity in a true Mexican style. We'll also have a Mexican hot drink and bread.
We hope to see you there!
