Snowbird Rving in New Mexico for the Holidays
There are many reasons why people head south for the winter, the warm weather being the most obvious. But people also head south for the holidays as well. It’s a great time to vacation as a family, enjoy the outdoor activities in the warmer climates, and experience the holidays in a different setting. If you’re worried about missing out on all the holiday traditions back home, not to worry. New Mexico has plenty of holiday activities to keep the spirit alive.
Albuquerque and Santa Fe: Luminarias and Farolitos
On Christmas Eve, the main plazas of both these cities are decorated with thousands of luminarias. In Santa Fe, cider is served, carols are sung and groups walk to the nearby Cross of the Martyrs.
Christmas Events in Santa Fe
In Santa Fe, families can also enjoy an annual Winter Spanish Market, a special Midnight Mass, and a traditional “Las Posadas” play about Mary and Joseph’s search for a room in Bethlehem. A yearly “Christmas at the Palace” event at the Palace of the Governors combines Hispanic, Anglo, and Native American traditions, and families will find carols, story-telling, native dances, and an appearance by Santa Claus.
Angel Fire Resort, Si Apache and Taos Ski Valley Torchlight Parades
The dark sky forms a perfect backdrop for the Christmas Eve torchlight parade and the New Year’s Eve torchlight parade and fireworks. Watch or participate in the parade as torches light the way for Santa and Mrs. Claus as fireworks on the mountainside slopes trumpet their grand entrance.
Snowshoe into New Year at Valles Caldera December 31
Ring in the New Year with cross-country skiing an/or snowshoeing under the stars at the Fire and Ice New Year’s Eve Celebration, 6 p.m.–1 a.m., at the Valles Caldera National Preserve west of Los Alamos December 31, 2012.
Victorian Christmas Evening (Silver City)
Reenactors dressed in clothing from the 1880s help visitors celebrate in the style common to Silver City before the turn of the century, and a visit from a frontier Father Christmas is always a favorite for kids and parents alike.
WinterFest (Los Alamos)
WinterFest celebrates the holidays with arts, crafts and music, highlighted by the Holiday Light Parade, when the lights through the middle of town are turned off and the glow from lights on decorated floats and automobiles illuminate the faces of spectators
