Light of the Season

Luminarias or Faralitos as they are known here in Santa Fe are everywhere during the holiday season. The idea for these came from Spain and are popular in the Latin culture. They are usually made from a paper bag, sand and a candle. These were used for the Winter Solstice celebration at the Santa Fe childrens museum. I will post a few more photos from this event after Christmas, stay tuned.
