  Christmas, Posadas & Markets
Posted on Dec 27th, 2006

December 2006

The christmas markets

A typical home nacimiento -- fills a room or corner of the home.

Fireworks at the market place

Our neighborhood posada. Each night one family hosts the posada. A family member from the home carries the statues through the neighborhood, going home to home, looking for a place to stay.

At each home, a song is sung, and from inside a response is sung back.

At the final home, everyone is let in for refreshements, and there are pinatas every night for the children.

The photos below are of a public posada, given by four Orphanages of San Miguel de Allende. All of the children are dressed in costume, with animals, Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus, going home to home.

and pinatas for all

the boys keep their goodies in their hats

A neighborhood posada, winding it's way through the streets.

The Parroquia, with a public procession in the back of a pickup truck, and people walking behind singing.
