Las Posadas is a holiday tradition at Christmas time, taking place in December each year. Posada is Spanish for “lodging”, “accommodation”, or “inn”. The traditional song for “asking for Posada” refers to the journey of Mary and Joseph traveling from place to place, asking for lodging.

The Posadas today consists of singing the traditional Christmas song and places one group of singers as the “Inn-keepers” inside a home, and another group of singers as the “pilgrims” on the outside. The “pilgrims” sing asking for a place at the Inn. The “In-keepers” respond by singing that there is no place at the Inn. The pilgrims go from house to house singing, until finally someone invites them in.

Las Posadas has origins in Spain, and is now celebrated primarily in Mexico, Guatemala, and throughout the United States.
