Holiday Festivities In Santa Fe, New Mexico
Historical Santa Fe is a magical year-round photo destination. Painters and photographers have long been attracted to the town because of its charming architecture and undiffused light. In December, the combination of Western, Hispanic and Native American traditions blend to create unique holiday celebrations in this nearly 400-year-old New Mexico capital.
What To Photograph
• Santa Fe Plaza on Christmas Eve: The historic plaza
is decorated with 1000 farolitos, which create striking evening photos (bring
your tripod). You can also join people in drinking cider, singing carols and
walking to the nearby Cross of the Martyrs, which is also outlined in farolitos.
For more photo ops, take a walk through the Capital and Canyon Road neighborhoods,
where homes, streets, trees, walls and businesses are outlined in lights.
