    That's right fellow kids, yule time is upon the face of the northern hemisphere again and more than anything, a sublime sesh with twinkly, multi-colored and otherwise sculpturally presented holiday lights is just the ticket to transcendence that remains so elusive during the otherwise dark and gloomy winter months that are upcoming and guaranteed not to be bright. An Albuquerque tradition, this sparkling spectacular, The River of Lights happens at the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden from Nov. 24 through Dec. 30. The lights blink on at 6pm daily but fizzle out about 9:30pm, so get there early, home-piece. The whole deal is closed on Dec. 24 and 25—hey if you wanna see lights on those nights, give me a buzz and we'll look into it!—but the price is right if you are looking for marvelous holiday enchantment any other time during the 2108 holiday season. For true light loving visitors, the Polar Express, a small train, is available to take riders out to meet Santa himself. Admission to the largest walk through festive lighting display in the state starts at $6 for children 3 through 12 years old. Adult admission begins at $12 and babies under 3 are free. A ride on the Polar Express is extra. Please inquire at the Botanic Garden, knowing that meeting the jolly old elf is well worth the extra feria.

    With the new year comes comes second chances, renewed senses of hope and a clean slate. Sally Moon hosts and leads her annual New Year's Day Despacho Ceremony to bolster the cleansing process. The Peruvian tradition passed from the Incas, is broken into three distinct parts. First the creation of the Despacho. For this component, participants should bring whole bay leaves, flowers and a dollar bill. Each contributor is blessed and pays honor to Pachamama by preparing the gift, filled with gratitude and prayers. Join in the second task with the break to feast. So bring a sharable dish for the occasion. The third and final stage of the ceremony is the the burning and burial of the Despacho. This part begins at 6pm and takes approximately two to three hours. While it is acceptable to leave prior to the fire ceremony, it is considered disrespectful to leave in the midst of the celebration. Women are asked to wear a skirt for the observance. This all takes place on Tuesday, Jan. 1 from 1 to 8pm at the Wild Moon Boutique in Old Town for free. Sow the seeds of intention and align with the highest destiny on the first day of the new year.
