One of Santa Fe's holiday traditions

is the annual Canyon Road Farolito Walk

which takes place on Christmas eve on Canyon Road

one of the most mythic

art walks in the West




Welcome to the End of the Alley

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) or luminarias (small bonfires), and sing as they warm themselves, and our hearts, from the cold night.




thanks for coming to the end of the alley

we are a long ways off Canyon Road

and so we dont see too many people

but on Christmas Eve people seem to

want to explore a bit more

and so we see a few people who like art

a few who like a good fire

and a few who just want to share

the festivities of Christmas eve

where you will find

two artist doing/showing their work

in a very old adobe home

with a blazing fire inside

think Santa Fe is supposed to be

because it is
