5:30pm—Las Posadas at historic Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. Las Posadas is the name given to the traditional way of celebrating Christmas in the villages and homes of Mexico and other Latin American countries. The journey of Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem is depicted each night in a candlelight procession, led by the Merchants of Olvera Street, who lead the singing of traditional hymns and holiday songs in English and Spanish. Entertainment starts at 5:30 p.m., piñata for the children at 6:30pm and Las Posadas procession at 7:30pm. Free champurrado & pan dulce provided following the procession.
