A feature of Christmas in Brigg added in recent times is the Posada.
From Spanish and Mexican traditions, the Posada borrows from the idea of commemorating Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem.
Christmas figures are now being hosted at various resting places provided by the community and businesses.
“Posada” is Spanish for ‘inn’ and gives its name to an old custom which saw young people dressed as Mary and Joseph travelled from house to house in the days before Christmas asking for a room for the night and telling people about the imminent coming of Jesus.
It is a way to bring the local community, shops, offices, homes, wherever together in a simple celebration of the Christmas season.
