Christmas in the Desert

Christmas decor takes on a desert aire when evergreens are not plentiful. We enjoyed decorated mesquite along one roadway we traveled. Ten to fifteen decorated trees were embellished by a variety of themes for several miles along our route.

Merry Christmas

Extra sparkles!!! They really show up in the desert sunshine!

Enjoy a lovely day and your Christmas decor, no matter what style or design you share!


  1. Thanks for sharing these pictures. I've never been in a desert over the holidays, and I never really thought about how they would decorate along the way. Very interesting!

  2. . . .and here I imagined you snug as bugs up at the cabin. I would have never guessed the dessert. Your tree pictures are great.

  3. It is amazing how our holidays look a bit different depending on where we live! We were blessed this Christmas with a snowfall, a real rarity for us! But somehow that just said "Christmas" to me. But Christmas in the desert would be a whole new experience! Special none the less.
    Enjoy the upcoming holiday,

  4. beautiful decorations. Mary

  8. Thanks for sharing ..I have never been in a place like this, but looks pretty.

  9. Our first christmas in Southern California, I missed the snow so much so Emery drove me out to the dessert and I got to see decorated Joshua trees with snow on them. Christmas is wonderful just about any place we are with the right attitude : )
