’tis the Season

December 28, 2022

December is the month for celebrations here in México. December 12 is the celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe, posadas occur nightly from the 15th to the 23rd, and then of course, Christmas. At the top of the post is a picture from our plaza in San Antonio Tlayacapan (SAT)- decorated even more beautifully this year if that is possible.

There was an effort by a group of young people from SAT to reinstate the traditions of the past with regard to the posadas. (That is the group, above!) They created a schedule that took into account all the various intersections in our little town to make sure everywhere was represented. We thoroughly enjoyed it when they came to our street, unfortunately the video I took is too long to share here. To see the schedule they made, please click here.

It’s a bit out of order but above you see one of the many altars to the Virgin outside homes in town.

To switch gears again, below is a video from the SAT plaza before Christmas.

The SAT malecon has also had a facelift over the last year. The plantings, walking paths and handrails have been improved and there is a new colorful mural next to the basketball courts.

I hope you have all been having a lovely time this holiday season, thank you very much for visiting Countdown to Mexico!

Share and Enjoy !
