Every year my family gets together on Christmas eve, we open presents and then eat dinner at La Placita in Old Town. For Christmas the Old Town neighborhood lines it’s streets with luminarias. It’s both beautiful and so popular that sold out bus tours drive around the area most of the night. Our family tradition makes our Christmas one day early and Christmas day open, but with everything closed, we usually just stay home.
