Merry Christmas with Luminarias at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Earlier this month, I had a great time walking through the luminarias at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Luminarias are a New Mexican tradition where people put candles or lights inside a brown bag weighted with sand, and they place these bags along their driveways and walkways to help illuminate the way for the Christ child to visit their home.

I enjoyed climbing the wildflower tower and watching everyone walking among the luminarias throughout the center. It was great that many held real candles inside sturdy brown plastic bags with a protective layer of water at the bottom. It was great to enjoy hot chocolate on that chilly December night.

Here’s the Ghost of Christmas Present from my Christmas video, “An Invasive Carol”, wishing you, your family, and your native plants a Merry Christmas!
