The Christmas Eve tradition in Santa Fe is to walk Canyon Road, which is decorated with farolitos (“little lanterns” – paper bags with candles inside), bonfires, wandering carolers, and lots and lots of people. And the whole thing was scented with the smoke from the piñon fires.
On Christmas afternoon, we went back to Canyon Road. The magic of the night before was gone, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t things to photograph!

UPDATE: This is funny – I had a comment from a follower who was reminded of the Paper, Rock Scissors game when he saw the photo of the farolitos. Check out the photo below of a sculpture I found only a couple of blocks away:
