Merry Christmas everyone! We're off to a late start here. We were up late last night - after a day trip to Santa Fe, we went to the San Felipe pueblo outside Albuquerque. My mother-in-law's boyfriend is a good friend of an artist in the pueblo, and he invited us out there for the dances. We went to a mass at the church, which was followed by a lot of ceremonial dancing (which are going to continue to go on for the next four days). Afterwards we went to the artist's place for some feasting - till about 2:30 in the morning, and didn't get back to the house until 4. That's another thing they'll be doing for the next four days, apparently - lots and lots of eating. Very good stuff. I like all the chiles out here, and lots of traditional Christmas food too.
I hope everyone has a merry Christmas.
