Christmas in Benson Arizona

The SKP Saguaro RV Park we are in is a Co-op where many folks own a lot and have a casita as well as their fifth wheel or motorhome.  Casita’s vary in size but are similar to a large shed or small garage in Ontario.  Some use them as an office or studio, extra bedroom, sitting room or simply for storage.  Most properties are landscaped with cacti and trees that attract the local birds.  At this time of year, everyone has lights and decorations out which help set the Christmas mood, especially after dark, which begins about 5:30 pm.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..

At the clubhouse where I exercise three times a week, I admire the three beautiful Christmas trees with their sparkling white lights.  There are many activities like carol sing, happy hour, breakfast club, holiday concerts and a group Christmas dinner that many residents enjoy.  We prefer to do our own thing.

I really can’t stay, baby it’s cold outside…..

In December 2010, we drove to Buffalo to pick up our Tiffin Motorhome that we ordered in October in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  We spent three snowy nights in the RV dealer parking lot/campground in order to check all systems before driving home.  I strung up some Christmas lights and we snuggled in to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Annual special.  That has become an annual Christmas Eve tradition; to watch the Choir, followed by the original black and white Scrooge with Alastair Sim.  We spend Christmas Day quietly, reveling in Christmases past, enjoying Christmas music and preparing a special dinner.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas….

We do miss our families and friends and hope that everyone will enjoy some of the wonderful traditions that we each bring to our Christmas.  Caron, Chris and Dixie
