How to organize a posada?

A posada is a significant Christmas celebration among Mexicans and Christians. It symbolically reenacts Mary and Joseph's search for lodging in Bethlehem. Whether for work, school, family, or friends, posadas are eagerly awaited and cherished events, making them memorable occasions to organize.

A posada is a very significant celebration in various cultural circles. It is a central part of the Christmas season, generally among Mexicans and Christians. Many people look forward to posadas and they are held for several different groups of people. There are posadas for work, school, family and even for close friends, just to name a few. So, if you are planning to organize a great posada, here are a few points that will help you make it memorable!


Choose the place

Posadas can be held in a wide variety of places like restaurants, offices, schools, houses, and some people even do block parties. In order for your guests to feel comfortable in whatever location you choose, make sure it is a place with enough space, good ventilation and that you can keep the climate controlled. Generally, these parties are held during cooler times of the season, so climate control is important.

Choose the music

Most people tend to remember the selection of music at posadas. Their good memories are usually tied to dancing and singing karaoke. So, you must select music that is popular with the time of the season and your audience. Christmas classics and regional music are always good options. You can also hire a band, that can set the mood for your celebration during the first few hours, so that the rest of the night is full of joy.

Decorate the place

Decorations according to the holiday season can make the atmosphere very pleasant for guests. Having poinsettias, a Christmas tree, inflatable figures, and other decorations will create a very cheerful Christmas feel.


There are several ways to provide food at a posada. Sometimes people work together to buy prepared food or hire a food delivery service. At other times each person brings something to share and eat, pot-luck style. It does not matter which method you use as long as there is something for guests to dine on.

Break a piñata

A posada isn’t complete without the traditional breaking of the piñata. Many people still fill them with candy, which always brings childlike fun to the celebration! You can take it a step further, by giving guests goodie bags full of sweets, which is a very traditional way to make the event more meaningful.
