Have your­self a busy lit­tle Christ­mas

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

Though Christ­mas comes but once a year, the lead-up to it is in­tense. A par­tic­u­larly mag­i­cal fla­vor in­hab­its North­ern New Mex­ico dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber. The snow­capped moun­tains and lines of glow­ing faroli­tos do their part, but our re­gion also goes into high gear for cul­tural events this month. As it does ev­ery year, Pasatiempo lays out the op­tions for fill­ing your cal­en­dar with hol­i­day hap­pen­ings. Whether your taste runs to con­certs, the­ater pieces, read­ings, out­door ad­ven­tures, or civic tra­di­tions, you’ll find that Santa Fe and its sur­round­ings have plenty on of­fer to keep your spir­its merry and bright.

« EVENTS LISTED ON PAGES 29-39 » More than four cen­turies of Christ­mas tra­di­tions have un­folded at the Palace of the Gover­nors in the heart of Santa Fe. The Palace (and the New Mex­ico His­tory Mu­seum, to which it is at­tached) closes briefly at 3 p.m. on Fri­day, Dec. 7, so the staff can trans­form it to open its doors again from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Hot cider and cook­ies, sea­sonal mu­sic, and fam­ily-ori­ented ac­tiv­i­ties (in­clud­ing an op­por­tu­nity to op­er­ate an old-fash­ioned print­ing press) are all on the docket, as is a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus. This is a free event, but if kind­ness in­spires you to bring along a non­per­ish­able food do­na­tion, it will make its way to an ap­pre­cia­tive re­cip­i­ent. En­ter at 105 W. Palace Ave. More in­for­ma­tion at nmhis­to­ry­mu­seum.org/cal­en­dar.
