Traditions in Mexico, “Las Posadas”?
posadas are religious celebrations that begin on the 16th of December and ends
on Christmas Eve.These festivities symbolizes
the pilgrimage that Mary and Joseph made as they were looking for lodging and
awaiting the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.Record of the first posada goes back to the 16th century!
Neighbors commemorate together by strolling the
streets of their neighborhood.They
carol, pray and knock on doors asking for a room. An important tradition is the smashing of the Piñata,
which represents the destruction of evil; the seven points of the Piñata
represent capital sins. The nine daysof festivities stand for for the nine months of
Mary’s pregnancy. http://www.buceriasrealestatesite.com/ #posadasbucerias #mexico authored by Guylaine Gignac
