To decorate differently this season -- try luminarias. These holiday yard decorations are easy to put together and fun for the whole family.
If you live in a warm locale, you may want to place luminarias along your garden paths for your outdoor holiday parties.
For three centuries, the Spanish villages along the Rio Grande have displayed Christmas luminarias. In Indian and Spanish villages luminarias are lighted on special occasions such as the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Christmas Eve and for great fiestas. In cities and suburban areas, luminarias are frequently used during the holidays to designate which homes are having parties.
