Easy Podcast: Las posadas mexicanas

Las posadas mexicanas are a popular Christmas tradition that take place during the nine days leading to December 25th.

As many holidays in Mexico, the roots of this festivity date back to pre-Hispanic times when people celebrated the god Huitzilopochtili during the month of December.

Adapted and merged with Catholic traditions, nowadays las posadas mexicanas represent Joseph Encinia’s and Mary’s quest to find lodging (posada).
