Chile Tree!

This tree at the Nueva Posada in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico is huge and is made entirely of dried red chiles (Spanish spelling) with poinsettias and a few juniper boughs for accents.  It was very hard to photograph but hope this gives a general idea.

    This is amazing!!!!I live in New England and I have never seen anything like this. I plan on lots of travel later in life and can’t wait to spend more time in the southwest. Now I have a future holiday of new things to look forward to!

    Wowwwweeee! This tree is absolutely stunning and I’ve never seen anything like it. Thank you for sharing. It’s wonderful to read and see other Christmas traditions from around the world, I have written a couple of posts about Swedish Christmas traditions that we celebrate, even though I’ve lived in the UK for most of my life. I saw you said you liked it when people added the url so here is the one to my blog : I’m looking forward to reading more on your blog now.

    Gorgeous! New Mexico insists on spelling it Chile, not Chili like those Texans do. We don’t put our beans in our chile, either, but on the side of the plate with the ‘spanish’ rice (ie. with tomato paste in it).
    Hugh just got home with our tree. I’ll post a picture when it’s done.
