Cabezon Neigborhood Christmas Lights

Three years ago, neighbors Shawn Novick and Craig Arroyo decided to run strings of Christmas lights from roof peak to roof peak across Reynosa Loop (in the Cabezon Subdivision of Rio Rancho, NM) as a novel decoration. Neighbors joined them, not only stepping up their house decorations but adding more strings of lights over the street. Their decorating has gotten some press, and now residents on neighboring streets have started doing it too. We have not seen this anywhere else in town, and we want to celebrate those in our community that go a little above and beyond in their efforts to make this a better or more interesting place to live.

Christmas Displays in Rio Rancho NM

It’s Christmas time in Rio Rancho. In recent years it’s also been a challenging time for many of our residents because of the economy. Some people are working two or more jobs to make ends meet. Others are still looking for work. As we’ve visited different neighborhoods in Rio Rancho, we’ve noticed that fewer households have decorated the outside of their homes for the holidays. Streets where every other home used to put up lights or displays now have maybe 1 in 10. Our point in mentioning this fact is not to focus on a negative aspect of our times, but to celebrate those families who could and did take the time, effort, and expense to light up the night where they live. In this video we will share with you 20 some Rio Rancho homes where the owners went above and beyond a simple string of lights. It makes no difference whether the home is large or small, it’s the heart that went into the decorating that matters. There are many more homes that probably deserve to be shown, but we hope you enjoy these. Happy holidays from the Mark and Sheila Real Estate Team.
