Description: Christmas in Mexico is a festive celebration with many colorful traditions. Among these is the commemoration of Mary and Joseph's difficult journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter. They stopped at many places referred to as 'La Posada' in Spanish, meaning inn or chelter in English. Traditionally, each night from December 16th to the 24th, Mexican children gather to walk through their neighborhood led by a small child dressed as an angel. The rest of the children walk through the streets with parents and Mariachi musicians following. They sing carols as they walk to the home for that evening's party, they ask for shelter and are invited in. Inside, they share food and hot cocoa and end the celebration by breaking a pinata.
