During Advent families from villages of the Benefice take part in a Posada. Posada – Spanish for “shelter” – is a custom that originated in Mexico where nativity sets of Mary and Joseph visit a different family or place every night between Advent Sunday and Christmas Eve. Our “Posada” consists of a knitted Joseph, Mary and a much loved Donkey.
Inspired by this custom, Rebecca Abrey has written and illustrated a children’s story book that tells the tale of the of a little knitted donkey’s journey and the fun that he had along the way. You can see a few of the pages below.
