Christmas Eve New Mexico Style: New Mexican Spread, Caroling, and more Luminarias

There may not be snow, but at least there was a fire.

Christmas Eve tradition states that there is a New Mexican spread at the Petersons, with Caroling to follow.

Yeah, that is Papa S. on the roof lighting MORE luminarias. Their neighborhood goes all out, lining ever fence, street, driveway, roof top. The rules are they have to black out the windows once it gets dark so all you see is the luminarias. The cars turn off their headlights to enjoy the glow.

Very beautiful tradition. It must take lots of cooperation and lots of work.
