Why Christmas in Santa Fe is the Most Magical Time of the Year

Christmas time around the world is absolutely spectacular. Every country, region, and city have their own unique spin on the classic holiday – including Santa Fe. If you’ve ever ventured to the great city of Santa Fe, you know just how much we love the winter holidays!

With so many events, so many traditions, Christmas time in Santa Fe is simply magical. If you’re looking for a Christmas vacation destination, there’s no place better than Santa Fe for the holidays. Why? Well, keep reading for your answer!

Traditional Tree Lighting Ceremony in the Historic Santa Fe Plaza

While watching a gigantic Christmas tree light up and adorned with hundreds of decorations is magic in itself, the true beauty of the ceremony is in the community gathering. All of Santa Fe comes out to croon Christmas carols, drink hot chocolate, and meet the jolly old man himself.

When you experience a Santa Fe tree lighting, you can’t help but be overjoyed with the Christmas spirit!

Experience the Farolito Walk

Ready for the most breathtaking Santa Fe Christmas experience yet? As the most favored Santa Fe tradition, the Farolito Walk should not be missed. Canyon Road on Christmas Eve lights up with farolitos (sand filled paper bags with votive candles) and it is such a glorious sight. The entire road is lined with farolitos, creating a marvelous and unparalleled environment.

When you visit Santa Fe this winter, make it a point to participate in the Farolito Walk – words simply cannot do it justice.

Take in the Santa Fe Atmosphere

Although Santa Fe is filled to the brim with Christmas and holiday events starting after Thanksgiving weekend, one of the best things to do is simply take it all in. Go for a walk downtown and see the shops and landmarks glowing with holiday lights. Watch as shoppers and locals travel throughout the downtown area with a smile on.

The Santa Fe area, while popular, miraculously tends to stay uncrowded during the holidays (with the exception of the actual holiday days). This creates a one-of-a-kind, unmatched holiday atmosphere. Here is where you’ll find true holiday magic. Children peering through shop windows, adults greeting each other with “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays”. Santa Fe truly knows what the holiday season is all about.
