So this was the second year for our Posada. And this year it was held at my house. Last year, as friends we decided that we would keep this tradition going. And so we did.
A posada is a get together of family and friends. It’s done for nine consecutive days until the 24th of December. We rotate homes each night. Everyone brings a dish to share, we sing traditional Spanish Christmas songs, and there is even a piñata for the kids involved.
I didn’t take many pictures, not even of the kids. But we had a ton of kids, and of course, they were excited to be able to have a “late night” just like their parents. I was told that night that “only at a Latin party would you find 7- month-old babies awake at midnight.” Oh C’mon! It’s the HOLIDAYS! And we like to celebrate…and we are trained to do so since we are young!
Some dishes from the menu included: Tamales – Mexico, Papas a la huancaina – Peru, Flautas – Mexico, Au Gratin Potatoes – America, Deditos (cheese sticks) - Colombia
Some of the girls!
Some of the cool dudes!
It’s almost here: Christmas! I have enjoyed sharing with you a little bit of my world and how my traditions are incorporated into this special time. I will publish my final “Christmas” post tomorrow and then I’m off blogging to get some very-well-deserved warmth and sunshine. Loving the Holidays and hope you are, too!
Happy Thursday Friends!
