Mary And Joesph

Mexico begins on December 16th with the las posadas. It is a nine night series of processions enacting Joseph and Mary's journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem and search for shelter for the baby to be born. Mexican children did not receive presents on Christmas but waited instead until January 6, known as Wise Men Day. The families believed that since the Magi brought gifts to Jesus, they were the designated ones to bring gifts to the children. The Magi normally put the present in the shoes the children leave out, but on many occasion, the gift was a new pair of shoes.
