Las Posadas Traditions

Posted on

For nine celebration-filled days (novena) before Christmas, December 16 – 24,  people all across Mexico celebrate Las Posadas with processions, candles, lanterns and food. Sometimes a boy and a girl dress up as Mary and Joseph, and in some villages neighbors will alternate serving meals to one another.  In the US many churches, communities, and schools now also practices this tradition.  Tamales are the traditionally served during Las Posadas, often enjoyed with Ponche Navideno, a hot fruity punch.  

El Burrito Mercado sells ponche & tamales daily during the holidays, in our Restaurant Bar we sell “Ponche con Piquete” (hot punch ‘spiked’ with tequila).
