December 16th to 24th

Las Posadas

Various Locations & Times

A tradition that dates back more than 400 years, the nine nights of Posadas beginning December 16th and ending on Christmas eve symbolize the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem.


A full list of Posada locations throughout the city can be found here.


From Experience San Miguel:


Taking place in a different colonia each night, a boy dressed as Joseph and a young girl dressed as Mary parade through the streets knocking on doors only to be turned away because there is "no room at the inn."


At each door, they sing the traditional Posada Song, "Pidiendo Posada," (Begging for Shelter). Learn all the lyrics to the Posada Song here.


Finally, the Holy Couple finds an open door and a welcome, and everyone is offered food and hot fruit ponche to drink. Piñatas get broken and candy gobbled. Try this ponche recipe yourself. It's a true Mexican taste of Christmas!
