Christmas in Santa Fe includes the traditional farolito stroll after dark along Canyon Road, the artistic thoroughfare that delights the eye. The luminaria is the wood fire. Farolitos are candles within paper sacks that light up the edges of sidewalks and walls along Canyon Road. For up-to-date information, consult the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper’s Christmas Day edition.
New Mexican Christmas celebrations rival Italy and Germany. Alessio Franceschetti, a very good friend of mine, sent me a montage of Christmas scenes in Italy. Do look at it: Natale in Italia 2010. This montage is moving and beautiful. Thank you, Alessio.
