Overview

In 1992, I spent an entire Christmas season in Santa Fe. That Christmas sojourn was so perfect that I’ve always hesitated to try to repeat it. I would rather keep the magic intact in my memory than run the risk of being disappointed if a second time didn’t stand up to the first. That is, until now. Susan’s book has made me realize that I’ve missed some truly exciting treats. —TOMIE dePAOLA

Old Laguna Pueblo

Old Laguna Pueblo is located west of Albuquerque.

There are several small villages which are all part of the Laguna tribe, but Old Laguna is the most famous. It is a picturesque hilltop village with a lovely old adobe church, plastered white. Laguna is famous for its pottery and jewelry as well as its contributions to literature and photography. On Christmas Eve, the tiny church at the top of the hill is likely to be outlined in colored electric Christmas lights. Deer Dances are performed inside the old church in the wee hours of Christmas morning after Old Laguna’s midnight mass. Dances are sometimes held at Old Laguna and all the other small Laguna villages on Christmas Day, but the Christmas Eve dances in the church at Old Laguna are the most important. The village of Old Laguna also dances on January 6.
