Christmas Eve on Canyon Road.

One of the biggest local traditions here in Santa Fe is the Christmas Eve walk on Canyon Road. Friends and Families walk long Canyon Road singing carols, enjoying hot chocolate and warming up on small bonfire. The road is full of Faralitos, lights and cheer similar to this. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!

I would love to walk along Canyon Road at this time of year. When I lived in Columbus, Ohio, I lived in a neighborhood that put out luminaria on a Sunday night in December and everyone walked around. It was magical.

Have a very merry Christmas, Randy.

Merry Christmas to you as well Randy! Santa Fe sure is magical this time of year. I had a sister-in-law who lived there and we used to love to visit her during the holidays. Great picture, you really captured the magic!

Hi Randy, I am coming by a little late! You got an awesome shot here! Just perfect to catch the essence of Canyon Rd on Christmas eve. I did get out this year... we got there right as it started to snow, so it was pretty magical. I hope to actually get a blog post done today... but we'll see, ha ha! Hope you had a very merry Christmas!
