One of the best things about celebrating a Catholic Christmas are the final days leading up to Christmas Eve. There are several long-standing cultural Catholic traditions to take us through these final days of Advent that are heightened with anticipation in so soon welcoming the birth of the King of Kings. The Las Posadas ("the inns") celebrated in Latin American countries and Simbáng Gabi ("Night Mass") in the Philippines are just two examples. There is also tradition of praying a novena for the nine days leading up to Christmas Eve. Not to be confused with the St. Andrew's Christmas Novena which began on November 30th (the feast day of St. Andrew) and is prayed 15 times daily until Christmas Eve.

For 9 days, from December 16th-24th, the faithful prepare for Christmas by acting out and reliving the days Mary & Joseph experienced as they journeyed to Bethlehem as told in the Gospels. They traveled from place to place seeking rest, only to be rejected, causing the Baby Jesus to be born in a manger.
The Knights of Columbus have a great timeline available detailing the fascinating history of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the 16th century apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary near present day Mexico City. From the birth of St. Juan Diego to modern times, this timeline shows how much the miraculous image of Our Lady has meant to the Americas, the Catholic Church, and the whole world.
