Las Posadas Event

Las Posadas is a Mexican tradition in which a pregnant Mary rides a donkey from house to house with her husband in search of an inn that will admit her. I'd read about this before, but never experienced it and so jumped at the chance to volunteer, through my university, to participate and also to serve dessert for a local farming community. It was a beautiful night - crystal clear - and a touching celebration with music, costumes, and more. The girls did a wonderful job serving dessert and the entire evening was a high point of our pre-Christmas preparation.
