  • Posadas And Piñatas
  • Ritual And Fun At Christmas

Pies de foto

  • Foto 1: When the time comes to break the piñata, a child or, as in this picture, an adult, is given a stick, blindfolded, and whirled around in circles. While several friends hold the piñata out of reach, the blindfolded person waves his stick wildly in hopes of hitting the piñata. Finally, after perhaps three or four people have taken their turn with the stick. someone is permitted to break the piñata. At this there is a wild scramble for the contents.
  • Foto 2: The first eight nights of the posadas are much the same as each other. But on Christmas Eve when the ninth night of Mary and Joseph's journey is ended, the people got to midnight mass, after wich most of them go home to a traditional Christmas Eve cena.
