Over 700 luminarias will be placed on the grounds of the National Historic Site and their candles lit for this annual holiday celebration. The Spanish words luminaria and farrolito mean little lights or flames. This Hispanic tradition is widely practiced in New Mexico and has been presented at Hubbell Trading Post each December since the early 1990s.
