Cheekwood includes Las Posadas in multicultural holiday celebration

December celebration at Cheekwood highlights diverse holiday traditions, including the Hispanic tradition Las Posadas, in which figures from a nativity scene are taken from house to house for the nine days prior to Christmas, and on Christmas day the baby Jesus is laid in a manger.

"'When we do the nativity scene, we blow it way out of proportion,' said Maitane Zuloaga Tidwell, president of Inclusive Communications. 'In some houses, it can be as large as a room. … It's our way to make sure everyone in the community is involved in the celebration.'"
