La Posada

La Posada—the Mexican Christmas procession recreating the Holy Family’s attempt to find shelter before Jesus was born—is a cherished tradition for many Latino families. It has deep religious roots, and deep resonance with current events: a story of temporary homelessness, and journey, and searching for a place of welcome at a time of great need.

Listen as Maria Hinojosa finds out what a Posada is like in chilly New York City in this piece produced by Nusha Balyan.
