Christmas in Santa Fe
December 23, 2014 5:18 pm42 Comments
Christmas is right around the corner. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season – hopefully, spent in Santa Fe! Holiday festivities begin at dusk on Christmas Eve with the annual Canyon Road Farolito Walk. This beloved tradition lights up heart and soul, as thousands of people stroll Canyon Road, which is decorated with farolitos (small, sand-filled bags with votive candles) and luminarias (bonfires). The joyous sounds of carols and friends and families greeting each other fills the air and hot cider is served at many of the galleries along the road. Farolitos and luminarias commemorate the lanterns that lit Mary and Joseph’s way on their quest to find shelter.
Christmas in Fuego
Before or after the farolito walk or, on Christmas Day, plan to gather with loved ones in Fuego for a festive holiday dinner.
