Greetings TAO Family and Friends!

There are many special traditions surrounding Christmas in Mexico. Some of these originated in Spain and others developed due to Mexico's particular history. The festivities surrounding Christmas last through much of the month of December.

December is a magical month to be living at TAO. Don’t miss out on the various events that are coming up. At the beginning of the month Jane Corbett, our very own homeowner will be teaching us how to reconnect with nature and dealing with transition. Just after this 4 day event we have the Heartmath where we will be the opportunity to learn reliable, science-based tools that will help us bridge the connection between our heart and mind, and deepen the connection with the hearts of others.

On the 19th of December we will have our Christmas & White Elephant Party starting at 7 PM and also our New Year’s Eve Party at 7 PM.

My thought of the month: We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them - Hillary DePiano

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

Warm regards

Isaac Henares

Christmas in Mexico

Christmas in Mexico

In Mexico, Christmas is celebrated from the December 12th to January 6th. From December 16th to Christmas Eve, children often perform the 'Posada' processions or Posadas. Posada is Spanish for Inn or Lodging. There are nine Posadas. These celebrate the part of the Christmas story where Joseph and Mary looked for a room in an Inn. For the Posadas, the outside of houses are decorated with evergreens, moss and paper lanterns.
