Christmas is in the Air

Christmas in San Miguel de Allende is so beautiful and festive.  There is a 40 to 50 foot tree put up every year in the jardin (town's main square).  This year it was wall to wall greens along with rows of red Poinsettias all strung with white lights. 
Decorations are strung across the street from one building to the next.  At night, they are all lite up.
I just love how these decorations cast such a dainty shadow on the ochre facade.  You can see the Monjas church in the background.
It would not be Christmas in San Miguel without Pinatas.
There is Len (my husband in the hat) and my brother (Carter) stepping up on the curb, on their way to the market to pick up some stocking stuffers.  Who knows what goodies they will come up with!  Don't know if they will be naughty or nice.
Looking down Calle Correo with all the Poinsettias.  I just love walking around town.  You never know what to see around each corner, whether is is Christmas, Easter week or just another day in San Miguel.  But then again, it just is not another day in San Miguel in my book.


  1. I love seeing the pictures but oh, it makes me so homesick.

  2. I bet you do. I hope your husband is doing well.
    Feliz Navidad.
