Lights and a Wall

Bisbee winters are milder than most of the nation, but when Bisbee-ites see snow there is excitement. Strands of Christmas lights are stretched across main street. Thankfully nobody plays the schlocky Christmas music that is a staple in some of the retail stores. 

Many homes have Christmas lights, in some cases these lights are elaborate. Most of the homes take down their lights by the new year.

There is one “strand” of lights that is on during the night all year long. These are the bluish-white lights of the wall between the United States and Mexico. These lights are not a celebration of a season but part of an attempt to keep people from illegally entering the United States.
