Las Posadas are Christmas celebrations in which the route taken by Mary and Joseph in their search for a place to stay for the birth of Jesus is recreated. Originally, Las Posadas were used by Spaniards as a tool to Christianize the conquered pueblos. Throughout the centuries, elements of the new Latin American realities from the region, the mestizos, and the indigenous were fused little by little in this colorful celebration.
