ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Wind caused some challenges at a Christmas Eve luminaria bus tour in Albuquerque.
Gusty winds were blowing out candles moments after being lit.
Other luminaria bags went up in flames and were quickly reduced to embers and ash.
One man had a bucket of water handy after a portion of his lawn caught fire.
Despite the uncooperative wind, people said the twinkling lights made for a special, beautiful Christmas Eve.
