Farolitos Light The Way

Farolitos lining the streets. Farolitos are paper bags with sand in the bottom to hold the sack down and anchor the lit farolito candle (see below). Luminarias are larger bond fires. Traditionally to light the way to midnight services on Christmas Eve. (In Albuquerque and other places they incorrectly call these small bags "luminarias.")
