Read an Excerpt

Where else do you find every downtown portal post wrapped with fragrant, fresh evergreen garland, and downtown hotels crowned with amber sacks called electric luminarias? Santa Fe has much to offer at Christmas, but it is also an excellent base camp for those with a car, good maps, and a spirit of adventure. It is an open candy box from Thanksgiving weekend till January 6th, with so many tempting choices that you couldn't possibly do them all in one Christmas season. Many who live in Santa Fe wouldn't dream of leaving town that time of year. Others make an annual ritual of traveling to Santa Fe for Christmas. This book will inform you about many well-known, and several less well-known, Christmas customs worth experiencing in and around Santa Fe.
