Christmas In New Mexico



For me nothing beats Christmas in New Mexico. I love all of the traditions, festivals and the food. I spent Christmas Eve in Taos, shopping and visiting my favorite restuarant. In the evening I went to the Taos Pueblo, it seemed like the whole city was there. On Christmas Eve you can see the Procession of the Virgin. You can read more about it here. This has become my favorite part of the season. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
