Posada: 12.22.13

Sunday, December 22
6 pm, Berendo entrance

La Posada is a Spanish and Latin American tradition which commemorates the difficult journey Mary and Joseph endured to find lodging and a place where Jesus would be born. To symbolize this, we walk through the church singing, and we stop at various doors throughout the building asking for lodging, only to be turned away. Finally, we end our journey finding respite and welcome. There we will share a hot meal and celebrate the eventual welcome offered to the weary Mary and Joseph. There will be piñatas for the children and joyous festivities.

La Posada es una tradición Española y latina americana que conmemora la difícil jornada de María y Jose en su búsqueda de alojamiento y un lugar por el nacimiento de Jesús. Para simbolizar esto, caminamos una ruta por la iglesia cantando y parando en varias puertas pidiendo alojamiento, solo para ser rechazados. Al fin, terminamos nuestra jornada encontrando descanso y bienvenida. Allí compartiremos una cena y celebraremos la bienvenida finalmente ofrecida a los cansados María y Jose. Habran piñatas para los niños y festividades para todos.
