A to Z Challenge: Luminaria

This month brings the A to Z Challenge, which I choose to meet with a series of words that thus far may have escaped your attention -- or not, if you live in New Mexico or have traveled South of the Border.

This is a light, typically a candle, inside a paper bag. It's used as an outdoor Christmas decoration in Mexico and parts of the Southwest. Travel north to Santa Fe, and you'll hear it called a farolito, or little lantern.
