Cheerful, charity fundraiser lights up Fremont
For a fun and festive holiday display, Tri-City residents donÕt have very far to look. Twinkling lights and colorful cartoon characters of Crippsmas Place light up cold winter nights with their annual neighborhood display starting Saturday, December 14.
Planned and operated by neighbors and volunteers known as the Crippsmas Club, Crippsmas Place boasts over 60 decorated houses along Nicolet Avenue and in the cul-de-sacs of Asquith Place, Cripps Place, Wellington Place, and Nicolet Court in north Fremont. Not only is Crippsmas Place a cheerful holiday event, it is also a charity fundraiser supporting six local organizations.
Las Posadas is religious and social preparation for La Navidad (Christmas) in Mexico and some Central American countries. Meaning "the inns" or "the shelters" in Spanish, Las Posadas spans nine evenings which commemorate Joseph and Mary's difficult journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem and their search for shelter prior to the birth of Christ. Fremont's Las Posadas, co-sponsored by the Fremont Cultural Arts Council and the Committee for the Restoration of the Mission San Jose every year since 1982, honors Fremont's Spanish Mission heritage and this advent tradition. All are invited to join the procession and enjoy this celebration of the holiday season.
It is thought that Las Posadas may have started in the 16th century by St. Ignatius of Loyola or Friar Pedro de Gant in Mexico. It began when a Spanish expedition conquered the Aztec empire and Mexico became a Spanish colony. Initiated by early friars, it combines Spanish Catholicism with the Aztec's celebration of the birth of their sun god, Huitzilopochtli, during the last days of December.
