Las Posadas:

Celebrating Mary and Joseph’s journey

The biting cold of the mid-December night did nothing to suppress the festive atmosphere amid dozens of worshipers who gathered for the Christmas Posada beside a busy main street in Dodge City.
The tradition finds its roots four centuries deep in the Mexican culture. Nine days prior to Christmas, large groups of worshipers gather together. A man and woman (in this case, a boy and girl) portray the Holy Family seeking shelter for the night. Often they will use a live donkey on which Mary rides.
Posada is Spanish for “accommodation,” and represents the nine months of pregnancy of the Holy Mother.
The group will process to different houses, singing, praying, and being offered tasty treats by homeowners. In Dodge City, the night started with dancers dressed in Aztec garb dancing a dance of prayer to the Holy Mother.
As cars zoomed by on Wyatt Earp Blvd., those outside Panaderia La Tapatia store and those inside each sang in turn, until those inside officially recognized the Holy Family and allowed them entry.
Typically, the group goes from private home to private home, but on this night, it was the store that offered the Holy Family respite, where they munched on free tacos, prayed and sang.
Children, led by their parents, later rushed out into the parking lot where a large, star-shaped piñata was held on a rope between two ladders, two men laughing as they pulled it upward as the children swung their hardest to free the hidden candy.
The Posada gathering was repeated on several nights in Dodge City, each time starting at a different location.

Las Posadas:

Celebrando el viaje de Maria y José

El intenso frio de la noche de mediados de diciembre no hizo nada para calmar el ambiente festivo en medio de decenas de fieles que se congregaron para la Posada Navideña al lado de una calle principal muy transitada en Dodge City.
La tradición encuentra sus raíces cuatro siglos en la cultura mexicana. Nueve días antes de Navidad, se reúnen grupos grandes de adoradores. Un hombre y una mujer (en este caso, un chico y una chica) se presentan como la Sagrada Familia buscando refugio para pasar la noche. Frecuentemente usan un burro vivo que le da paseos a María.
Posada significa “alojamiento,”   y  representa  los  nueve meces de embarazo de la Santa madre.
El grupo se procesará a diferentes casas, cantando, orando y les ofrecen bocadillos sabrosos por los dueños del hogar. En Dodge City, la noche comenzó con bailarines vestidos con atuendo Azteca bailando una danza de oración a la Santa Madre.
Mientras los coches zumbaban por el bulevar de Wyatt Earp, aquellos afuera de la Panadería La Tapatía y los que estaban a dentro cantaban durante su turno, hasta que los de adentro oficialmente reconocían a la Sagrada Familia y los dejaban entrar.
Normalmente, el grupo va de hogar privado a hogar privado, pero en esta noche, fue la panadería que les ofreció un respiro a la Sagrada Familia, donde comieron tacos gratis, rezaron y cantaron.
Los niños y niñas, dirigidos por sus parientes, salieron en carrereados al estacionamiento donde una piñata grande, en forma de estrella sobre una cuerda entre dos escaleras, dos hombres riendo mientras estiraban hacia arriba cuando los niños le daban duro para que soltara todos los dulces escondidos.
La reunión de las Posadas fue repetida durante varias noches en Dodge City, a partir de un lugar diferente cada vez.
