Las posadas mexicanas take place during the nine days leading to December 25th.
Like other Mexican traditions, the roots of this popular festivity date back to pre-Hispanic times when the Aztecs celebrated the god Huitzilopochtili during December.
Adapted and merged with Catholic traditions, nowadays Las posadas mexicanas represent Joseph’s and Mary’s quest to find lodging (posada).
