NAVIDAD FESTIVAL DE SAN MIGUEL Exclusive Stay -
* 7-Nights Accommodations at the Featured ThirdHome property - Casa Carino (property ID #09446)
* CHRISTMAS WEEK FESTIVAL & LAS POSADAS -
Last Two Weeks in December - Festival de San Miguel begins its seasonal Chamber Music Festival. Begun in 1987, the Festival de San Miguel is the second chamber music festival of the year. It's been recognized by the Mexican government as the country's best classical music festival, in addition to free concerts for children. "Las Posadas" is not one event, but a string of December events in San Miguel de Allende, the nine nights of the posadas—which means "inn"— represent the nine-day journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. In a different colonia each night, a boy dressed as Joseph and a young girl dressed as Mary (usually riding donkey) parade through the streets knocking on doors only to be turned away because there is "no room at the inn." At each door, they sing the traditional Posada Song, "Pidiendo Posada," (Begging for Shelter). Finally, the Holy Couple finds an open door and a welcome, and everyone is offered food and hot fruit cider to drink. Piñatas get broken and candy gobbled. It's all the merry making and cultural insights to a true Mexican taste of Christmas. "Pastorals" (passion plays) are another highlight of this period. The plays mix spirituality with jovial spirits, often with flying angels and evil devils getting their due. Broad satire often lampoons political figures. There is usually a wonderful part of the Christmas season!
