A New Year's Eve tradition






 A wonderful tradition for New Year's Eve.
The signs say it all.




 During the day we went to the Wheelwright Museum
of the American Indian  holds the distinction of being the oldest non-profit private museum in the state of New Mexico. Housed in an octagonal-shaped building that takes its inspiration from the Navajo "hooghan," the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian is dedicated to displaying exemplary works of art in the Native American tradition. Visit the Case Trading Post, which is the museum's gift shop, to purchase fine contemporary art and craft items created some of the Southwest's finest living artists and craftspeople.




 It is situated on Museum Hill. This time we got a cab there and walked back.


A great chance to capture some more of the colours of New Mexico.

Santa Fe is a magical place for ringing in the New Year. The streets are illuminated by farolitos, snow blankets the ground and the city throws open its doors to usher in the New Year. From four-course dinners and entertainment to parties with live bands, interactive art installations and a train ride through the high desert at midnight, you'll find plenty of creative ways to celebrate New Year's Eve in Santa Fe. Happy 2012!
Light Up a Life
This traditional lighting of farolitos on the Santa Fe Plaza in memory of lost ones is hosted by the The Hospice Center. You can purchase a farolito for $20 in honor of a loved one.
