Holiday Activities

-Las Noches de las Luminaries at Desert Botanical Garden Nov. 23- Dec 23..  This is a great place to bring out of town guests to give them a taste of the southwest. Buffet dinner, musical entertainment, and a cozy fire to keep warm.


-Sister's Christmas Catechism- The Mystery of the Magi's Gold, Theater 4301, Nov. 23 - Dec. 23.  These shows sell out quickly and are very funny offering an alternative to traditional holiday shows. 



-Polar Express train rides departing from Williams, AZ to visit the "north pole."  Hot chocolate, cookies, and the Polar Express story!  Limited space so call early to make a reservation and truly enjoy the holiday spirit!



-ZooLights at the Phoenix Zoo is one of the largest holiday lighting events in the southwest. This year several new features have been added; a dancing tree show, a talking giraffe, carousel, wagon, and camel rides... YES camel rides and I can say that I have done one before and it's an experience everyone should try!


Upcoming Concerts

·         Coldplay is coming November 26, 2008 at Jobing.com Arena


Fun Thanksgiving did you know facts...

-Did you know... that Thanksgiving didn't become an official national holiday until more than 200 years later, when in 1863 President Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November a national day of thanksgiving.

-Mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, popcorn, milk, corn on the cob, and cranberries were not foods present on the first Thanksgiving's feast table.  Lobster, rabbit, chicken, fish, squashes, beans, chestnuts, hickory nuts, onions, leeks, dried fruits, maple syrup and honey, radishes, cabbage, carrots, eggs, and goat cheese are thought to have made up the first Thanksgiving feast.

-The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade tradition began in the 1920's.

-Each year, the average American eats somewhere between 16 - 18 pounds of turkey.

-Turkeys have poor night vision

-Turkeys can drown if they look up when it is raining....BY FAR THE BEST FACT!
