  • New Mexicans have hung chili pepper ristras (strings) for centuries. They're one of the most common symbols of the "Land of Enchantment."

    At Christmastime, many New Mexico families hang ristras shaped like wreaths on their front doors or mantels instead of traditional holly wreaths.

    Decorating tip: "The red chili wreath is a perfect table centerpiece for Valentine's Day decorating - just lay it flat and put a white pillar candle in the center, there's nothing prettier. And in July, do the same with a blue pillar candle and a few dried white flowers tucked among the chiles for an outstanding 4th of July centerpiece." --- customer Barb Deniston, CO
