Things That Make Mexican Christmas Special

Christmas in Mexico is something that everybody should experience at least once in their lives.

Christmas in Mexican capitol (Mexican City) and other Mexican cities is great but Christmas in traditional Mexican towns and villages is something really special and unique.

Mexicans, in general, are religious however Mexican people that live in the rural parts of Mexico are very religious and traditional.

If you would like to experience something special and beautiful, you should visit a village, or small town, in Central Mexico during the Christmas celebrations.

During the nine day period between 16th of December and December 24 Mexicans have, what they call, the Posadas.

The Posadas is nine day celebration of the upcoming Holy Night when Jesus Christ our savior was born.

During the Posadas family members, friends and neighbors take part in acting out the night when St. Joseph and Virgin Mary were looking for lodging.

Every night there is one family that is prescheduled to be the host of the Posada for that particular night; while the rest of the family, friends and neighbors sing traditional Mexican Christmas songs, carry candles and two small statues of St. Joseph and Virgin Mary and seek lodging.

They seek lodging in three different places (homes or shops) but only the third one would allow them in. Once inside, everybody gathers around the traditional Mexican nativity scene and say the Christmas prayers together.

After the prayers are said everybody sing the Christmas songs and the party can begin.

The Posada is not as festive as most of Mexican parties, but it is the time that the family and friends get to spend together in prayers and joy.

This is only a small part of traditional Christmas celebrations in Mexico, and it is only an introduction to the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day however it is enough to understand why the Christmas time in Mexico is beautiful and special.
