The plaza was filled with colorful lights, lumanarias, creches, and all manner of Christmas decorations. It made for a festive atmosphere on our Christmas Eve stroll.
A Christmas tree was adorned with pieces created by local children. A group sang carols from the bandstand with the surrounding crowd adding their voices. Shops and lamp posts were twisted in glittery garlands. And of course Santa was there.

Not to be outdone, the other nearby plaza had a huge tree with tons of lights. Various decorations and lights adorned street lights, trees, benches, the stage, and even some folks walking around.
The bright decorations, happy crowds, laughing children, and the brisk temperature all contributed to invoking the holiday spirit.
