Las Posadas Celebration at Cal Lutheran
December 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Community members are invited to join with California Lutheran University students and staff to re-enact the Christmas story in the Mexican tradition of Las Posadas from 7-9 p.m. Dec. 6.
In the university’s annual event, students representing Mary and Joseph will travel by donkey through campus seeking shelter for the birth of their son. Other students, staff and visitors holding candles will walk with them from the Ahmanson Science Center to the Lundring Events Center. The evening will conclude with a piñata and refreshments of hot chocolate and pan dulce (sweet bread). This festive Mexican tradition dates back to the 16th century.
The Ahmanson Science Center is located south of Memorial Parkway near Pioneer Avenue on the Thousand Oaks campus.
Cal Lutheran’s Office of Multicultural Programs and International Student Services, the Latin American Student Organization and the Department of Languages and Cultures are sponsoring the free event. For more information, contact Daniel Lawrence at 805-493-3489 or [email protected]
