Las Posadas is an important Mexican tradition during the holidays–complete with prayer, music, food, and piñatas. They commemorate Mary and Joseph’s search for an inn by forming a procession to that evening’s location and symbolically asking for shelter. When the owner of the home finally lets everyone in, they celebrate! Feliz Navidad (Merry Christmas), from Mexico! Check out this fun tradition!
Kwanzaa is a week long celebration held in the United States to honor universal African heritage and culture. People light a kinara (candle holder with seven candles) and give each other gifts. It takes place from December 26 to January 1 every year. It was created by Maulana Karenga and was first celebrated in 1966 - 1967. Non-African Americans also celebrate Kwanzaa. The holiday greeting is "Joyous Kwanzaa". Learn more about the celebration here.
Winter Solstice occurs On December 21st. Here in the northern hemisphere, we experience the shortest day of the year and inevitably the darkest day of the year. After the winter solstice, we start to get back our sunlight little by little until we make it to the summer solstice. This celebration goes ages and ages back, but one of the main reasons for the winter solstice celebration is to celebrate what will be the return of light after the darkest day. Now I think that’s something to celebrate too!
Chinese New Year, also referred to as Lunar New Year, is the most important holiday on the Chinese calendar.
