  • Palabras Pintorescas: Christmas trees and ice skating go together

    How many trees does it take to make a Christmas tree? Most of us would say one, even a scraggly one at that.

  • Mora County Notebook: Christmas spirit alive in the valley

    The big week-end in Mora started on Friday with the school children decorating the Christmas tree inside of the Southwest Capital Bank. Joyce Romo and Sarah Martinez brought their second graders to the bank to decorate the pine tree on Friday morning with attractive decorations the students made in class.

    Then on Saturday the Winter Fest and pageant was well attended.

    In spite of cold and threatening snow the Winter Fest was a great success. The many local venders were there to show off their wares and sell to those who needed the things they had made.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Remedies that kept us healthy and happy

    My take on problem solving is probably not acceptable to most of us. The “ignore it and it will go away” theory has been tried in my home for a very long time. My mother and my mother-in-law both agreed that the solution to the problem is not ignoring it.

  • Mora County Notebook: Holiday season begins in Mora

    This is the weekend of Christmas preparation in Mora.

    On Friday night, at 6 p.m.. there will be a session with Noche de Las Familias at Tapetes de Lana when families gather for a time together.

    Saturday starting at 10 a.m. until 3 p.m, the annual Winter Fest will take place in the elementary Gym at the Mora Independent School district. There will be many local venders with the results of their skills and hard work to sell to those who are looking for something to share in Christmas gifts and for their own use.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Oh, those Christmas photo cards

    Time flies when one has fun. Suddenly I look at the calendar, (it is almost December as I write this) and look outside (there are 14 inches of new snow on the ground) and I realize it is about time to search out Christmas cards.

    I might be able to dig out a Christmas card from very long ago if I work at sorting the boxes of photographs I’ve already written about. Our parents fell for someone’s line about how wonderful photograph Christmas cards were when Sweet Brother Bill and I were just “wee tots,” as my grandparents would say.

    Yesterday was a special day in the year. Families met to share in the blessings of the year and to feast on the bounties that have been provided. Then there is the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and football.
