Night of the Luminaria from 6 to 9 pm.
Modern luminaria usually consist of a small candles inside paper lunch bags weighted with sand, the simple bags trace their history to ornate, hand-cut Chinese paper lanterns. Spanish merchants were intrigued with the Chinese paper lanterns, and when they returned to Spain they created the simpler version. The Spaniards used the lumineria along the walkways of their homes to help lead the spirit of the Christ child into their home at Christmas time.
We will be closing at our usual 5 pm closing time. I think Sean and I will take a walk and enjoy the annual event ... be sure to say hello if you bump into us!
Relax and enjoy the beautiful night this Saturday - And Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
