POTD - illuminate

I was first introduced to luminarias when I lived in Albuquerque.  I was overwhelmed, I tell you, just overwhelmed.  I don't know if it was the beauty or the peace or the light or a lingering spirit, but it overwhelmed me.  I had never seen them anywhere else before that time.  

I believe they are much more common these days.  Sunday night the Riverside neighborhood in Jacksonville had a luminaria display.  Miles and miles of sidewalks and roadways were lit with white paper sacks that held a little sand and a candle.  Just beautiful.

I agree, they are beautiful. I have never done them but I was actually thinking about it for Christmas Eve since we don't have anything in front of the house! Of course that would mean I have to leave my house to buy some :)
