Christmas in New Mexico

Christmas Eve LuminariasChristmas in New Mexico could be a snowy white Christmas or a bright sunny day, but it’s always beautiful.  From traditional adobe homes decorated with luminarias to more modern stucco and twinkle lights the season is festive.  Families get together to share a meal – typically Abuelita’s tamales – and maybe some egg nog or stornger spirits. Most Christmas traditions include a trip to the church as well or a luminaria tour around Old Town or the Plaza

Decorations might include chile ristras or even red chile lights.  And often as you walk around our cities the smell of cedar burning in fireplaces to keep everyone warm.  If you’d like to learn more about Christmas in New Mexico, or plan a trip to visit us, here’s a link to our tourism site.

Christmas, is also the answer to our State Question – Red or Green?  We’re known for our red and green chile – usually grown in Hatch, NM.  The question refers to how you would like to order your food, burritos, relleno’s, heuvo rancheros, or even your cheeseburger.   Would you like red or green chile on that?   The best answer is “Christmas” meaning both.  And in New Mexico we put red and green chile on everything.   EVERYTHING.
