Store Christmas South of Border May Be Traditional, 'Social' By CHARLES GREEN MEXICO Christmas r CITY ( A P ) in Mexico is Times Herald, Carroll, la. Saturday, Nov. 18, 1967 ChSmas tathe UniW StaS: double shot at P resentS ' , The trend to make Mexico s Christmas more like that in the United States started after the Second World War. Now almost every middle and upper class home sports a Christmas tree, a tree which may stand for a full month. But Mexican law protects this country's few fir trees, so Mexicans buy trees imported from the United States or Canada. In some remote sections of the country the manger scene or creche is still the highpoint of Christmas decoration. Artisans spend many hours fashioning the figures inside the creche. The biggest part of the Mexican season starts nine days before Christmas. For nine nights there are "posadas" all over the country. But there is still much tradition left and Christmastime is the big social season in this country. Many Mexicans now have Christmas trees, imported of course, and Santa Glaus mixes freely with the Three Kings outside big department stores. But Mexicans still have "posadas" to reenact Mary and Joseph's search for an inn; the tiny dolls in the "roica de reyes", build intricate and beautiful manger scenes and break "pinatas." Children still put a shoe out for small gifts rather than hang • stocking. The blending of tradition with imported Christmas ideas is wonderful for some middle class children because it means a : 'Posada" means inn, and these parties started out as religious reenactments of the search for lodging in Bethlehem. Guests ask, in song, for lodging. The host sings back that he has no space. Another verse repeats the request and the host opens the door to the candle - carrying guests. Now "posadas" for the most part are Christmas parties just like those in New York or anywhere else north of the border. Liquor flows freely. Each year the Catholic Church deplores the degeneration of "posadas" into drinking parties. The church has succeeded in getting Mexicans to omit some of the more religious parts of the traditional song but, midway through the evening, candle carrying guests are likely to march through the host's home singing for lodging between slugs of imported whiskey. Religious organizations, and some private citizens, keep the traditional posada alive. Sometimes the host bakes a cake called "rosca de reyes" in which is hidden a tiny doll. The guest whose slice contains the doll is obligated to hold the next "posada." Parties for children and often for adults, include a "pinata." This is a clay pot decorated with gaily - colored paper to look like a king, a saint, a politician or any sort of animal. It contains candy, fruit, nuts and other edibles. Blindfolded guests take turns trying to smash it with a stick. .s.a.a.^^.a.^a.aAa.ftfra,*^^^^ £ £ »•«•. w WATERS PARADE OF CHRISTMAS FASHIONS rom The Most Important Shirt of The Year The Button-Down Collar Blouse in Never Iron Permanent Press Fabrics Wide Track Stripes Window pane plaids Tiny checks White and solids Long sleeves or rollup sleeves. $5.00 and $5.98 Here it is!
