Navidad en Mˇxico

Submitted By Elida Padilla

Celebrating Christmas in Mexico is truly a wonderful and unique experience. The festivities begin December 16 with the traditional Posada, which is a procession that starts at the main church and proceeds from house to house for nine consecutive evenings. Mary and Joseph are at the head of the procession and followed by people singing, praying, and holding lighted candles. With this people remember the wanderings of Mary and Joseph through the streets of Bethlehem in search of lodging.

Through ÒNavidad en MexicoÓ Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Carlos Moreno will show you how Mexico celebrates Christmas and takes you to various regions to share the fun and excitement of its folklore through music, song, and dance.

Founded in 1967, Ballet Folklorico Mexicano presents artistic and traditional forms of dance from the different regions of Mexico, and tours regularly throughout the U.S. and Mexico. ÒNavidad en MexicoÓ has been presented annually since 1971 and features around 50 performers who deliver an exciting show for the whole family.
