Christmas Posada in Zacango

This year Zacango had posadas leading up to Christmas and we had a chance to join in the celebration. Posadas are a Mexican Christmas tradition that involve a candlelight procession through the community to a given house (chosen ahead of time) to reenact the part of the Christmas story where Mary and Joseph request a room at the inn. A series of prayers are said and special songs are sung until the owner of the house lets the group (who is waiting outside) into the house where they are served a small meal by the host. We even had the honour of hosting a posada and served pizza to a group a sixty or so people. Talk about a full inn!
