GLOW-- A Winter Holiday Lights Event takes place at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden up on the city's Museum Hill. This festival of lights runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from the first Thursday in December to the Saturday following New Year's Day from 5 to 8pm. The Garden becomes a winter wonderland lit by thousands of lights, including LED, floodlights, kinetic lights that move rhythmically and fairy lights in plants and trees. Saturday nights bring bracing hot toddies to ward off the cold. Santa will be in attendance and there will be live music. Arrive right at opening and watch the spectacular high desert sunset that's been drawing artists and others to Santa Fe for over 100 years. The transition from day to night will enhance your experience. If you're lucky, it might snow, making your evening even more magical. There is an admission charge.

- Holiday Attractions: "Come back and visit the Santa Fe Botanic Garden during the day, too. While you might not expect it, parts of the garden are alive and beautiful in winter. High desert evergreens, grasses and cactuses give visitors pleasure year-round."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: Christmas is about lights. The Santa Fe Botanic Garden's unique light show will amaze and amuse the entire family.
