Start a Holiday Light Tour Tradition



Create Holiday Memories

Arizona is famous for spectacular holiday light shows. If you haven’t already, start a holiday tradition. View the lights in a limo or party bus.

Since the winter weather in Phoenix is so moderate, businesses and families can take their time and put together fabulous holiday light displays.

Many of these holiday light displays will grow year after year. Since the mild winter does very little damage to holiday decorations here in the desert. These decorations can last for years.

This means holiday decorating aficionados can just add to their displays year after year, instead of having to replace decorations damaged by the ice and snow. Just one of the many benefits of our mild Arizona winters.

Quinceanera Celebrations | A Treat For Your Princess


What is Quinceanera?

Quinceanera is a right of passage. It marks a turning point in a young girl’s life. Quince (Keen-say) means fifteen in Spanish. This event is the celebration of a young girl’s fifteenth birthday. Quinceanera stands for the event. It is also the name of the young girl herself.

Every child deserves a rite of passage. The change from child to young adult is an important time in everyone’s life. It should be celebrated. Perhaps this is an event more Americans should enjoy.

Have More Fun with a Homecoming Party Bus

Its hard to imagine homecoming being any more fun than it is. But imagine the fun of arriving at the Homecoming dance in a party bus filled with your best buds.

Homecoming differs from prom in many ways. First, Homecoming is less formal than prom. Then there’s the fact that Homecoming is at the beginning of the school year. Whereas, prom is at the end.

Homecoming is the start of something. Prom is the end.


1913_Auburn_football_team_Champions_of_SouthWhat is Homecoming?

A football game is at the center of Homecoming.  Events are planned around this big game. These events can include spirit weeks and pep rallies, parades, speeches and of course a Homecoming dance. The events are all intended to unite alumni and students to create a stronger sense of school pride. Typically they are wildly successful.

History of Homecoming

Brief History of Football

Since Homecoming revolves around a football game it seems appropriate to include a little history of football.

Football today is not the same as the football played in the early 1900’s. The NFL states that the earliest games of football were based on soccer and not rugby. And it was a very dangerous game.

 In 1908, 33 football players were killed on the field. Between 1910 and 12 more protective padding was introduced. This helped reduce the death and injury toll. Other changes made at this time included the addition of a fourth down, and the six point touchdown.

Homecoming is Born

It may seem hard to believe but Homecoming only started in the early 1900’s. Amazingly there is even a competition for the title of “Birthplace of Homecoming.”

The University of Illinois used to claim the title of first. They had had an event with football and alumni in 1910. But after further review they had to change that claim. Now they only say they have the longest running Homecoming celebration.

The University of Missouri-Columbia , or Mizzou, is actually the trivia question winner. They started celebrating homecoming in 1911. Although they weren’t really the first, if you ask Jeopardy! or Trivial Pursuit, they say Mizzou was first. Perhaps its because they were the most vocal about their 1911 Homecoming event. This Mizzou Homecoming event has, in fact, been repeated ever since.

But the honor actually goes to Baylor University, a private school in Waco, Texas. They invited alumni home for a football game in 1909. But they didn’t call it Homecoming. They called it Good Will Week. They also did not repeat the event for several years. This and the smallness of the school may have all played a part in Baylor not being credited with this honor.

Homecoming Etiquette

Homecoming is a time to cut loose. Its filled with the excitement of the beginning of the school year. Beginnings offer opportunities. There is the mystery of what the following school year has in store. And everyone loves a mystery, right?

Homecoming Students waiting on their Homecoming Party BusHomecoming fashions are less formal than prom. Girls wear cocktail dresses instead of a formal gown. Cocktail dresses are commonly shorter in length.

Boys still wear a shirt and tie to Homecoming, much like prom. At prom a boy wears a suit. But suits are not a necessity for Homecoming. Boys may, or may not wear a suit coat.

Students may attend the Homecoming dance with a date. But more often boys and girls travel to the dance as just friends. This is an important distinction.

Mums and Garters-Get Your Homecoming Party BusOn a date, boys are still responsible for most of the costs. These can include the cost of dinner, the ticket price and transportation. Homecoming may also include flowers. Some schools have a tradition of mums and garters.

This is a huge tradition in Texas. Girls wear a mum to the Homecoming dance, boys wear a garter.

The bigger the better as is true of everything in Texas. It is a sign of love to have a large “mum.” Mums are worn on the chest, perhaps hung around the girls neck.

Mums can include ribbons and flowers, usually silk flowers. Garters are worn on the boys arm and will include ribbons as well.

Traveling to the Homecoming dance as “just friends” means the girl should be prepared to split the costs of the event. Clarifying this distinction before-hand is important. Just in case, girls, you should always be prepared with a little stash of cash.

Its common for students to just travel in groups to Homecoming. Often girls, or boys, will travel together in a pack. This is quite different than prom where students travel to prom together as groups of couples.
