What is the best Christmas light display in New Mexico?

While there are certainly some incredible Christmas light displays in New Mexico, make sure that you take the time to visit the town of Madrid over the holidays. This is a small town in the Ortiz Mountains between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. There isn’t much to this town and only 200 people call it home. However, it is one of the best places to spend Christmas in New Mexico. At the beginning of the holiday season, the town hosts an annual Christmas parade, complete with a red-nosed yak. The town also goes all out with its Christmas lights. It’s so well-adorned that it gained national attention and airlines would reroute their flights so passengers could look down and see the incredible displays.
