Christmas Eve in Santa Fe

Santa Fe has some wonderful holiday celebrations. The most famous is the Canyon Road Farolito Walk, which is a very popular community event that begins at dusk. For a quieter experience, the Santa Fe Plaza is also lined with farolitos (paper bags filled with sand and a lit candle) and holiday lights. Several years ago, I took this image looking towards the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica.

If you’d like to see more photos of Santa Fe, feel free to look at my Santa Fe Photo Gallery. And for those of you celebrating Christmas, have a magical Christmas Eve!
