The article highlights the celebration of the 15th La Posada in the border field park of the U.S. side and in the old lighthouse plaza in Tijuana, Mexico where people gathered to celebrate the spirit of Christmas in 2008. The celebration was said to be the last due to the eminent construction of the second border wall which would stop all contact in the said area. Among the crows enjoying the posada were the organizers from the Immigrant Defense Coalition and churches from various denominations.
