Christmas celebrations in Mexico incorporate elements from the pre-Hispanic period, Spanish traditional from Mexico's colonial period, and adaptations from German and American Christmas traditions. The season begins in early December with a celebration for the Virgin of Guadalupe, Mexico's patron saint. Pastorelas, or shepherd's plays, and Las Posadas, a series of parties and processions, take place from mid-December to Christmas Eve. These theatrical events were developed during the colonial period to teach the Christmas story. Christmas trees, first popular with the German and American expatriate communities, became a wide-spread Christmas decoration in the late 20th century. This whimsical tree ornament shows the nativity scene in a painted clay fruit. ¡Feliz Navidad!
