Other than the delicious food my mom and aunties make for our family’s celebration on Christmas Eve, my favorite New Mexican Christmas tradition is setting out luminarias, which are lanterns made out of a brown paper bag, a candle and some sand. People line their fences and driveways with them, and in the rural area where I live where there is no street lighting, you can make out the glow of a row of luminarias even from a distance at night.
