Farolito
This is a Farolito. It is a paper bag with sand and a candle. They may call it a Luminaria in other places, but in Santa Fe a Farolito (slang: bagolito) is a candle in a paperbag and a Luminaria is an open fire. I took this photo in Camden, Maine.

    I just love these! Love the slang…bagolito! I had never heard of that. The snow adds the finishing touch!

    Oh, I’m in luck, a Farolito on Dec 12th!!! It’s MY birthday-light. This pic will accompany me during the new year of my life.

    happy you enjoyed them – perhaps they lined the streets with them that evening because you were in town.
