I am 70 years old and still get excited about Christmas, especially the beautiful christmas lights. The plaza christmas lights are absolutely outstanding: the colors, the detail, the installation.....fantastic and credit to the workers that are dedicated to such a show!!!!

However, while the plaza proper is decorated so beautifully, the adjacent buildings and streets show very little of the same world class enthusiasm. Most side streets and businesses have dull lighting or none at all.

Santa Fe could become a more attractive destination if the colorful bright lights were extended to the rest of the downtown area. Santa Fe is a natural for such lighting. The farolitos are ok but not the same level of the colorful lights. Can you imagine if the Inn at Loretto decorated their building with lights instead of fake farolitos.dull! LED lights are very economical and much more of a show. Maybe the City of SF can provide an incentive to businesses to show off this great city.
