The group wound their way through the moonlit farm, candles in hand. They were split in half - one group "inside" and one "outside" where "outside" sang imploring entrance. They were denied entrance by those "inside" with a sung response. Eventually the "outside" group was allowed "inside" and everyone gathered to celebrate over our meal. Chef Caryl remarked on the comfortable silence that falls when everyone settles into dinner, sharing a meal together. This silence was quickly broken when the pinata was revealed and nearly all of the kids took a good whack at it. A tree may have been accidentally whacked at all, but he was a sturdy leafed fellow. Of course there was dancing! Of course there was tequila! But we can't reveal every secret of our Mexican posada!
South Florida is so culturally diverse and opportunities abound to experience others' traditions. Take those opportunities when they appear and share your own, you won't regret it.
Safe and Happy Holidays everyone! - Kelly
