The word "posada" means inn or lodging, and traditionally posadas are a celebration as a representation of the way walk by mother Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay, where she would give birth. They take place on nine nights from December 16 to 24. Posadas in Mexico feature hot food and drinks, sweets, music, and piñatas.

Throughout Mexico, churches and communities celebrate these festivities with religious elements. But lately almost any party held around Christmas is called a posada. Schools often host posadas as end-of-the-year parties for students and teachers.
