Mary and Joseph have crossed the Oxford Road and found a comfortable place to stay in Beacon Close. They still have many more homes to visit. In Mexico, the posada does not start until 16th December so it is much shorter. Their tradition involves real people dressing as Mary and Joseph and a parade through the streets. All around the world different cultures celebrate the coming of Christ our Lord in different ways, but it is the same Lord, and the same message of God’s love for us all.
