Introducing Posada
“So Joseph went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.”  Luke 2:4- 5.

What is Posada? Posada is a Spanish word meaning ‘inn’. Posada celebrations originated in Mexico where two young people were chosen to dress up as Mary and Joseph. They used to travel from house to house in their village telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus and asking them if they would give Him a room. On Christmas Eve they would re-enact a community play and bring figures of Mary and Joseph to be placed in a crib.

The modern day equivalent is based on this concept but encourages people to give a home to the nativity figures of Mary and Joseph for a night. This symbolises making room for Jesus in our lives, homes and communities.

Each night from the fourth Sunday before Christmas the figures travel around the parish, work place or community from place to place arriving in Church or at a service on Christmas Eve in time to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

The journey encourages people to think about the meaning of Christmas and to share the message with others. On Christmas Eve when the figures arrive at their final destination, the crib scene is built up during a service in preparation for Christmas Day.
