December 09, 2020
“Las Posadas” are part of the celebration of Christmas. They commemorate the journey of Mary and Joseph, parents of Jesus, as they traveled house to house to find shelter in Bethlehem for Jesus to be born. Hispanics across the globe celebrate “Las Posadas” as part of their culture. These popular festivities bring people together that gather to share traditional dishes, beverages, and the folklore of their own culture. This event will be hosted via zoom and will show a nativity scene and will discuss the meaning of Las Posadas and why it is an important holiday for folks in Latin America, and specifically those of the Catholic faith. We will be collaborating with staff to make this event a success!
Time: 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
