December 12th – DAY OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

This is one of the most celebrated days in Mexico and it commemorates the Catholic belief that Virgin Mary, Jesus’ mother, appeared in Mexico in 1531. As the story goes, a man named Juan Diego encountered the Virgin Mary twice in Mexico City on December 9 and again on December 12. According to legend, Mary told Juan to ask the bishop to build a church on Tepeyac Hill. Juan returned to the hill to see roses in a spot where only cacti had previously grown. When Juan Diego returned, he showed the roses to the archbishop and also revealed an image on his cloak of the Lady of Guadalupe. It is said that millions of Mexicans were converted to Catholicism as a result of her appearance and miracle. Our Lady of Guadalupe Day is not a federal public holiday—sorry kids, you’ll still have school—but it is a religious festival celebrated in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo with fireworks, street fairs and processions following mass.

December 16th-24th – LAS POSADAS

Las Posadas is a novenario (nine days of religious observance) celebrated primarily in Mexico, beginning December 16 and ending on December 24. The ritual has been a tradition in Mexico going back 400 years. The word posada means ‘shelter’ or ‘inn’, which makes sense as this tradition specifically re-enacts Mary and Joseph’s search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. The celebration begins with a procession in which the participants hold candles and sing songs requesting shelter, and leading the way are the individuals dressed up as Joseph and Mary. In these modern times posadas have taken a new meaning, and if you’re invited to one you will most likely not be participating in a procession; you will attend a party where ponche and tamales will be served and then a star-shaped piñata filled with seasonal fruit and candies will be torn-up! The Posadas are a very important part of Mexican Christmas celebrations.
