Posadas, a Mexican Christmas Tradition. Sing with guitars and a mandolin choir from Nuesra Señora Saturday December 7 after our 5 p.m. service. They will also play and sing at during the service. Nuestra will treat us to tamales and empanadas after the Posadas. The Posadas reenact in music and drama the Virgin Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging in Bethlehem so that Mary could give birth to Jesus. It will be a joyous experience for all especially our children.
