We visited several neighborhoods in the Phoenix area this holiday season, including our own. At night. To see the lights! We want to share them with you. Here is the second neighborhood we visited. It’s way north and a development unto itself out in the desert. Enjoy the lights!
The flower of the Saguaro Cactus is the State flower of Arizona. It is illegal to take one from the desert but you can purchase them from greenhouses to plant in your yard. Many Arizonians have them and at this time of year, some are very brightly lit up with spotlights like this one.
Some residents wrap their Saguaros with holiday lights. Everyone is unique.
It was impossible to get this house in one shot or even the two you will see here.
This buckboard was unique. But it might have been the brainchild of a holiday light designer. I didn’t realize that many people hire designers to create light displays in their yards for the holidays.
Palm trees are also prevalent on the desert and are often lit up or wrapped in lights. This one has a moving lazer light beamed on it. It’s a bit difficult to see but if you look closely you will see the small, pinpoints of lights up in the tree.
This is the final one and I thought it just about perfect. Keep watching for more holiday lights to come! Have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Looks like you covered a lot of beautiful lights, and evidently knew just where to see them. Thanks for sharing.

It’s been a nice, guided tour!
