Luminaria Nights


A tradition in the garden during this time of year....candles in a bag along walkways. They light the paths of visitors and onlookers all night long.  A tradition that dates way back from hispanic culture and one that the Old Pueblo celebrates......... and maybe you can use these holiday ideas in your own garden. Just make sure it's a calm windless night:)

Before nightfall


  1. Beautiful. I've wished I could do this but we often get strong winds. However, last night was calm and our local historic fort put out luminaries for their Christmas display. It was beautiful.

  2. Thanks...only been to the Luminaria events in ABQ Old Town and at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phx. People here put luminarias up on their roofs sometimes not much past Halloween!

  3. I've always wanted to do this! It's such a peaceful and simple way to celebrate. Thanks.
