Fort Leaton State Historic Site -- The first Christmas celebration in Mexico took place in 1538 when missionaries brought Roman Catholicism to the new continent. Ever since then, the story of La Posada, where Joseph and Mary look for a place to stay the night on the original Christmas eve, has been celebrated in this part of the world.

Texas Parks and Wildlife takes us to Presidio, Texas where folks from both sides of the border bring this religious story to life.
