Las Posadas is a nine-day rotating pilgrimage popular in Latin America and the Philippines commemorating the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Suggested by St. Ignatius Loyola as the focus of a Christmas novena in the 16th century, it was shaped by St. John of the Cross into a pageant in 1580. It was introduced in Mexico in 1587 as a solemn celebration in church but soon began to be celebrated in homes and became more festive. Las Posadas weaves together Advent themes of waiting, hospitality and social justice.
