Starry and bright: All is quiet on Christmas Eve in San Miguel de Allende

Merry Christmas from beautiful San Miguel de Allende, a city that is no more beautiful than on Christmas Eve.

The city has been decorated for weeks but we waited until this evening to walk through historic Centro. A perfect night for it — the temperature dropped suddenly, the wind picked up slightly, and there were ever so few people out and about.

This is just a brisk tour through the center of this magical city. I took some photos while Rose handed out tangerines and caps that she’d knitted to a few people. Moppit just sniffed the curbs and wondered why we kept stopping to take in the beauty of it all.

I hope you enjoy this, too.

Meanwhile, stay warm, stay safe, stay loved. Thank you for reading this sometimes meandering and confusing blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

Merry Christmas, then. Peace on Earth. Goodwill and may 2021 give you back all your dreams and more.

    Thank you so much for this! I have been sending it all over the US and other parts of the world! You are a real talent! Give a hug to Rose! I am one of her students!
    Merry Christmas!
