As long as I have lived in Tucson these little Santa hats have been slipped onto the ears of Father Kino's steed to celebrate Christmas. The statue stands on Kino Parkway near 15th Street. If you would like to learn more about this remarkable man, click here. I have read that there is a movement to promote him for sainthood.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
