Christmas Eve in Santa Fe...
"On Christmas Eve, the town gathers on historic Canyon Road, home to many of the city’s over 200 galleries, some shops and a few restaurants. The street is closed to traffic, thousands walk up and down the road greeting friends, spontaneously breaking into song and enjoying the luminarias (piñon wood bonfires) burning along the street. People stop to warm their hands, farolitos burn merrily in paper bags along the way. The street is ablaze with thousands of fairy lights. It feels like the whole city has turned out for the festivities. Some shops and galleries stay open. Hot chocolate, cider and cookies are offered along the way by merchants and others sharing the holiday spirit. A white Christmas makes the scene seems even more magical." by Santa Fe Traveler
