Christmas Eve Experience 2012
Alamos for the Christmas Holidays… Why not?
Would you like to celebrate Christmas this year in a really meaningful way? Then Hacienda de los Santos is the place to be. Here, the light shines on the reason for the season: Jesus. Our focus isn’t on gifts, though Santa might drop by with a chocolate or two just for you—and a photo op, of course.
The Christmas Eve Posada begins at 6:30 p.m. with a moonlit walk through the Tacubaya Barrio, or neighborhood, following Mary on a burro with Joseph, begging every home they stop at for posada, or a place to spend the night. It will be easy to feel transported back 2011 years and truly experience what they must have felt.
Lovely Christmas music is played by Los Hacendados, who accompany us on this short journey. Returning to the Hacienda, the big doors will swing open and, indeed, here is a room for the baby to be born…and for you to enjoy. Magic fills the air as our hearts are renewed with this representation of that most Holy Night. Kings, shepherds and angels gather round the baby Jesus, while a beautiful rendition of the Ave Maria is sung to the Virgin Mary, followed by our heartfelt and joyful chorus of Feliz Navidad.
With renewed spirits we will toast our fellow holiday guests with chilled Champagne, and it’s on to Christmas Eve dinner. There is always a communal table for those who wish to make new friends and share the Holiday love. Private seating can also be arranged with table for two or for a group or a family wishing to dine together. Children are always welcome during the Holidays at the Hacienda.
