Paseo Pointe families celebrated “Posadas at the Pointe” on December 20.

The roots of Las Posadas stretch deeply into Latin culture. It originated in Spain, but it has been a yearly celebration throughout Mexico for over 400 years. The tradition commemorates the biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s difficult journey in search of a warm place to stay the night. (Posadas is Spanish for “lodgings” or “accommodations.”) Posadas begin on December 16 and end nine days later, on December 24. Each night, one family agrees to house the festivities.

Paseo Pointe honored this tradition by providing nine activities for our families to enjoy. Activities included gingerbread house building, pinata and poinsettia crafts, luminarias, caroling, photos with Santa, food, and more!
