Reto al Tepozteco and Virgin of Nativity Celebrations
At the Reto al Tepozteco annual celebration, the people put on a theatrical performance of the history of Tepoztécatl, the ruler who was baptized and converted to the Catholic faith (which caused him to receive threats from rulers of neighboring settlements—hence the name of the festivity: “Defiance to the Tepozteco”). Nevertheless, he was unharmed thanks to the protection of the Virgin. Our Lady of the Nativity is celebrated at the same time.
