Printable Las Posadas Tradition Activity for Children

Las Posadas is a cherished tradition that marks the journey Mary and Joseph took to Bethlehem. Las Posadas is a wonderful way to celebrate Hispanic culture in the Catholic classroom and reflect on the importance of hospitality and welcoming others. This centuries-old tradition also highlights a part of the nativity story that sometimes gets overlooked in the busyness of the Advent and Christmas season.

Las Posadas es una festividad que se celebra durante nueve noches, del 16 al 24 de diciembre. Las Posadas significa “los
hospedajes” en español. Durante la festividad, los peregrinos recrean el viaje de María y José hacia Belén, cuando no pudieron
encontrar lugar para alojarse en la posada. Haz una aldea de papel para recrear el peregrinaje de María y José, inspirada en
Las Posadas.      ACTIVIDAD Pueblo de las Posadas - Haga Click AQUI

Printable Advent Activity for Children

The liturgical year begins with Advent, the four weeks prior to Christmas. It is a season of preparation, waiting, and anticipation. We ready ourselves to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ in two ways—by recalling his historical birth over 2000 years ago, and by looking ahead to his second coming.  For a printable Advent Activity CLICK HERE

El año litúrgico comienza con el Adviento, que son las cuatro semanas antes de la Navidad. Es un tiempo de preparación, espera y anticipación. Nos preparamos para celebrar la venida de Jesucristo de dos maneras: recordando su nacimiento histórico hace más
de dos mil años y esperando su segunda venida.  - Actividad Adviento  - Haga Click AQUI
