On 2023-12-02, I attended the 45th Annual Luminarias display held by San Juan College (SJC). I took some photos which I have uploaded to a static image gallery using fgallery.


Growing up in Farmington, NM, I had considered the holiday luminaria display at SJC to be a routine celebration observed everywhere. It wasnΚΌt until after I left the area that I realized lighting thousands of candles inside paper bags was a somewhat niche tradition. The Wikimedia Commons category Luminaries in the United States shows some photographs but none of the San Juan College event which has been going on for over 4 decades. At some point I'll upload some photos to Commons but I wanted to get some select photos uploaded to my static resource site
