Cool Pick of the Week

Farolito Walk
One of Santa Fe’s most beloved holiday traditions, the Canyon Road Farolito Walk – 5pm on Christmas Eve.

Small, sand-filled, paper bags illuminated with votive candles line the historic neighborhood streets and adobe walls. Carolers gather around the farolitos (Spanish for paper lantern; diminutive of farol,lantern; from faro, lighthouse, lantern; from Latin pharus, from Pharus, Pharos) and sing for joy as they warm themselves, and our hearts, from the cold night.
