Exploring Taos ~ Part 4 ~ Magical Christmastime
Here's what I think. I think everyone should spend Christmastime in Taos at least once. The whole month of December if possible. There's something going on ever minute, and it's all fun, fun, fun. Yesterday Deborah and I went to the kids' party at the Festival of Trees & Wreaths, which is held at the glorious El Monte Sagrado. Tonight is the main event, for the adults, but I think we had more fun being there with all the kids. A lot of them dressed up in their holiday velvets and satins, and they were so cute to watch as they looked at all the decorated trees, snacked on popcorn mixed with cheesy goldfish crackers and cranberries, and made fancy paper crowns and glimmering pipe cleaner snowflakes at the long craft table. And of course Santa showed up and caused a flurry of excitement. Kids. They get it. They feel the magic, and so we got to too.
Tonight is the big tree lighting on the plaza. We'll be there. And we'll be keeping the Taos News handy, so we'll know what's going on every day from now till New Years. I really love this time of year here. I wish you all could be here too. Let me know if you're coming, and we'll meet up at the Taos Inn for a tasty beverage!
