For an undeniably one-of-a-kind take on Christmas celebrations, prepare for a vacation to Taos in the time of the holiday season. The town's Native American and Hispanic influences prevail, bringing a multicultural flourish to the holiday season with entertainments like the illuminating of Ledoux Street, where the charming street's stores, studios, museums and galleries offer drink, music and food, and bonfires to passersby's, and the neighborhood is lined up with farolitos, or small lanterns, warmly shining.Taos's Christmas tree lighting occurs at the end of November in a festivity that consists of carol singing and the arrival of Father Christmas in an ancient fire engine. In the days preceding Christmas, the town also rejoices in the Hispanic custom "Las Posadas", a candlelight processional at Ranchos de Taos Plaza, in addition to a presentation of "Los Pastores", a Spanish morality play. The climax of the holiday events happens on Xmas Day, on the Taos Pueblo. The pueblo denizens enjoy a processional through the pueblo's plaza whilst carrying the statue of the Blessed Mother. Bonfires are likewise sparked and traditional tribal dances performed.
