Las Posados -Celebrates the journey of Mary & Joseph searching for lodgings, it is a nine-day celebration with origins in Spain, now celebrated chiefly in Mexico, Guatemala and parts of the Southwestern United States, beginning December 16 and ending December 24, on evenings. Central to Las Posadas is the piñata, usually filled with oranges, guavas, peanuts, sugar cane and assorted candies. Today, it is viewed as a party game, but it has religious and pre-Columbian roots. The piñata symbolizes the sweet hope and prize from the sky (i.e. the Aztec sun god/Christ) that falls when it is broken open with a stick.
