The Los Altos neighborhood started a Christmas Eve tradition of setting up luminarias 60 years ago. When we bought our house 8 years ago, we were warned that we'd be expected to join in. This year, we put up over 200 luminarias around our house. And several hundred people made their way through our neighborhood that evening to see them.
