New Mexico’s Christmas season is full of traditions and customs that are rooted in Native American, Mexican, and Spanish cultures. The traditions are reflected in home decorations. A farolito, a small paper bag filled with sand that holds a candle, is a traditional decoration. Farolitos were originally brought to New Mexico by Spanish traders in the Philippines. Later, they were brought to New Mexico by German immigrants as well as German-Americans. Other traditional decorations include chile decorations on porches, large bonfires made from pinyon logs, and chile decorations on large bonfires.

PJ Sedillo decorated the White House
A New Mexico man decorated the White House for Christmas. He volunteered along with a team of volunteers and spent two days decorating the White House. The theme for this year’s Christmas decorating was ‘The Gift of the Holidays’. It celebrates family and education as well as life. PJ Sedillo teaches special education.
PJ Sedillo has a flair for decorating and has an appreciation for Christmas. He has eighteen tabletop and full-size trees in his home. Each tree has a different theme. In addition, he recently added a tree for the Orlando shooting victims. Sedillo and his wife host a massive Christmas party one week after Thanksgiving. They ask that guests bring canned goods.
During President Obama’s tenure, greeting cards included more inclusive messages. They included wishes for a peaceful holiday.

PJ Sedillo has 18 full-size and tabletop trees at home
PJ Sedillo is a retired teacher who keeps 18 full-size and tabletop Christmas trees in his home. He spent two days assembling the trees and gluing them to them. To keep them safe, Sedillo uses heavy-duty wire and sticks to secure the ornaments. He decorates them every year to make them look as beautiful as possible.
The tabletop Christmas tree is small and festive, and can fit on a table or shelf. There are many styles available from West Elm, including an 18-inch tabletop fel tree. You can also purchase it in sets of 2. The larger tree is 24 inches tall and the smaller tree is 18 inches tall.
Sedillo is a talented decorator and loves the holidays. Sedillo has 18 trees in his home, and 18 tabletop trees. Each tree has a different theme. He recently added one to honor the Orlando shooting victims. The family hosts a huge Christmas party at their home and asks guests to donate canned goods.
Tabletop trees are also great for small spaces. These trees can hold ornaments that are too small to fit on the main tree. Most tabletop trees are pre-lit with white lights and don’t require burlap-wrapped bases. A tabletop tree also gives you enough space to place presents underneath.
If you aren’t a big fan of decorating and don’t have the time to do all the work, tabletop trees are a great option. The Oyydecor mini tree, for example, comes with lights, decorations, and a tree topper. It is two feet tall and does not take up much counter space.
