Posadas in La Antigua Guatemala


Catholics in the American Continent celebrate many of the same religious events and traditions on the same days, more or less, but they do not do it exactly the same. For instance, Posadas, small processions that take to the streets the images of Mary and Joseph on platforms, beginning on December 15th, are celebrated differently in Guatemala than they do in Mexico, which is my only other reference. Below a detail explanation of how are Posadas celebrated in La Antigua Guatemala.

Literature Side Note: For an interesting twist on the story that 35% of the population of the world knows about, I recommend you read The Gospel According to Jesus Christ by José Saramago, Nobel Prize for literature in 1998.
