A Ruidoso Christmas Poem

‘Twas the night before Christmas

and all through our little town

the wild horse herd roamed

and twinkling lights shone all around.

Ruidoso gleamed and glittered

with sleigh rides and hot chocolate in the park,

as families gathered to celebrate the season

with full bellies and warm hearts.

Tucked back on winding mountain roads,

loved ones snuggled in cabins

after a full day of winter fun

and Ruidoso’s special touch of holiday magic.

Shoppers rushed back with their treasures

as Cowboy fiddlers played a merry tune.

And Midtown storefronts locked up tight.

Christmas is coming soon!

While Santa in his sleigh prepared

and last minute baking was done,

the holiday season felt extra special

getting to gather again with everyone.

So little heads lay down to sleep

as Upper Canyon hears bells chime

See the reindeer pulling a bright red sleigh

It must be Christmastime!

Merry Christmas from Visit Ruidoso! Wishing you all a wonderful, magical, merry, and bright holiday season this year!
