Looking to spice up your traditional Christmas party? Why not through a Posada Party or Fiesta and celebrate the season like they do south of the border?!
We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Mexico last month. We had a marvelous time resting in the sun, exploring, and eating. However, due to our location, our Thanksgiving dinner was a little out of the norm.
Instead of turkey and dressing we feasted on lobster and steak, tacos al pastor, tamales, and ceviche. It was pretty heavenly, I have to say.
On several occasions we had the opportunity to share our regular Thanksgiving traditions with new friends who were very curious about the concept behind the feast.
In return they shared some of their holiday traditions with us. I loved hearing about the Posada pre-Christmas parties thrown around Mexico and thought it would be fun to throw our own Mexican Fiesta this year.
If pinatas, margaritas, and Mexican food recipes are right up your alley, consider throwing your own posada party or fiesta this Christmas.
Here are some dishes to get you on your way…
