Christmas in Albuquerque, New Mexico, my home, is not quite like Christmas anywhere else. Yes, there are Christmas trees lights and pointsettas, but there are also luminarias and chile! I spent Christmas Eve and early Christmas morning 2002 taking pictures of lighted homes and the Plaza in Old Town decorated with luminarias. May my photos bring you as much enjoyment as taking them brought me.
