Give A Delicious Secret Santa Gift

Have you been randomly-assigned a gift recipient at work this year? Are you supposed to keep your identity a secret for the weeks leading up to the office party, when gifts will be distributed and the cloak of anonymity removed? Sounds like you’re participating in Secret Santa.

This group gift swap is popular in the West, where it goes by many names: Secretos Amigos in Latin America, Julklapp in Scandinavia (where we got the idea from, incidentally).

Special Holiday Happenings in Albuquerque

turkeyday3November is a special month in Albuquerque full of fun and festive events for the whole family. We are an avid supporter of local community events and Albuquerque organizations that put these events because they are a great way to bring our community together.

Here are a few of the great events this month in Albuquerque:

Native American Heritage Month

The entire month of November as well as December are dedicated to celebrating the heritage, culture, and life of Native Americans. This includes the Native American Dancing and Pueblo Feast Days. These include dances, cultural exhibitions, and delicious food. It is a respectful time to celebrate culture and heritage.

The holidays are a wonderful time to visit the neighboring pueblos since many of them hold feast day celebrations over the course of the two months. It is a great way to better understand the culture and beliefs of Native Americans, a major part of our Albuquerque.turkeyday2
