The Night of Las Posadas
November 25, 2016
Learning of all the traditions that are celebrated throughout the world during December are numberless. The Spanish have “Las Posadas” which is a nine day celebration. Some places the celebration is quite elaborate and other small villages it is very humble. But where ever the celebration takes place, it is wonderful to see.
Tomie dePaola tells the story of on specific night when the truck carrying Mary and Joseph (actors in the procession) broke down and yet the play went on miraculously. His illustrations are amazing as only he can do. This is a great book to share with children and show them of other wonderful traditions of this time of year.
