One of my favorite Santa Fe traditions. Follow Mary and Joseph and their band of musicians (no wise men, no sheep) around the Plaza. At several intervals they sing for a room at the inn (in Spanish) and a devil appears in windows, on balconies and at portals and tells them to “Vayanse!” while spectators boo and hiss. Finally they are allowed to stay at the courtyard at the Palace of the Governors and we all go inside to have hot cider and cookies (either chocolate chip or biscochitos) and we listen to a choir sing Christmas carols in Spanish. (like Silent Night: noche de paz, noche de amor). Then have your photo taken with un diablo and go home to dinner.
