Experience A Traditional Mexican Posada With The El Paso Museum Of History

wise men

The El Paso Museum of History in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico in El Paso invites everyone to a Traditional Mexican Posada.

The event will have piñata breaking, villancicos (holiday songs) candy, tamales, hot chocolate, live music by Prominence Dúo and a Pastorela which is a holiday theatrical performance by the Juárez theatrical company: Telón de Arena.

Posadas are a Christmas tradition in Mexico and the celebration is held for family, friends, and neighbors. The nine days of posadas leading up to Christmas Eve (noche buena or holy night) are observed.

A posada is the reenactment of the pilgrimage to Bethlehem by Mary and Joseph (los peregrinos) in search of a room. From December 16th through December 24th, Mexican families customarily hold a posada party one evening in each of their homes.

Posada parties are not only marked by traditional rituals but are also filled with cheerful socializing, authentic food, tamales, hot chocolate and fun for the entire family, including a special Christmas drink and a piñata filled with candy.
