Once again we have to move

Take care of what is yours

And you can have what is mine,

Our love is tough

Through dirt and dust

Last night was scary but we’ll be fine.

You got from a shelter home,

Empty bellies with full hearts

Drawing on walls, racing shopping carts

Wherever we’re at is our...

The event’s organizer, The Community Pantry, states the festival is more than a display of dazzling decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. It represents the generosity and pride of Gallup and its community.

“This is a time of the...
