Christmas in Oaxaca – A Virtual Tour of Mexican Christmas Traditions

December 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Discover Oaxaca Tours to explore some of the traditions surrounding Christmas and New Year’s celebrations in Oaxaca, Mexico.

In Oaxaca, the Christmas season is not about shopping for presents and you won’t see much of Santa Claus. The whole month of December is very festive however! We’ll look at the different manifestations of the Virgin Mary that are celebrated this month, the tradition of the posadas, and a uniquely Oaxacan celebration: the Night of the Radishes. We’ll also learn about the connection between the poinsettia flower and Mexico, what piñatas and radishes have to do with Christmas, and more.

Join us for a little virtual Mexican holiday cheer!

Details: We’re limiting the number of spots to keep the groups small so there will be time for interaction and questions. This virtual tour will be conducted via Zoom. You’ll need a device with Zoom installed, and an internet connection with the bandwidth to stream audio and video in order to participate. A link and details on how to join will be included in your booking confirmation email.

Your HostSuzanne Barbezat has lived in Mexico for over twenty years. She’s a tour guide with Discover Oaxaca Tours and the author of Frida Kahlo at Home.
