Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año 2019!

Our children and their families living in the surroundings to Monarch Sanctuaries and in town, will celebrate posadas gathering together at night each night, one week before Christmas. Candles, firework, piñatas, hot fruit punch and delicious typical Mexican dishes are part of it all and bring families and friends together; reflexion, family harmony and friendships grow stronger by it, and on the other side, excitment for children comes when it comes to decorating pots to make Piñatas by themselves and they are announced to get broken!. Piñatas consist of a clay pot colorfully dressed as a beautiful star with seven peaks. The pot means the evil and each peak represents one of the seven capital sins according to the Christian belief: Soberbia, avaricia, ira, envidia, pereza, gula and lujuria. The bended eyes to the one hitting the piñata represents Faith. Breaking the piñata and getting all fruits and candies out,mean all evil having been defeated and blessings coming endlessly and all over for mankind. On behalf of our Mexican Children, their families and teachers, who guard the habitat for Monarch butterflies at their overwintering sites in Central México, we wish that the link of frienship and responsibility built for years now through Journey North and the Symbolic Migration, shall be an ever-lighting candle between our three countries, Canada, the United States and México, which light shall keep our present and future generations hand in hand working together for the conservation and improvement of our historical links in all aspects being Monarch butterflies the symbol and demonstration of freedom and strenght without borders and without limits for the wellness of mankind. Feliz Navidad y Año Nuevo 2019!.
