Thanksgiving has passed, which means the Christmas decorations have started to go up.
In Phoenix, Christmas decorations are a little different than the rest of the country, so we present the 10 most stereotypical pieces of Phoenix Christmas decor:
10.) At the Mormon Church
An annual trip to the Mormon church isn't really a common practice outside of Mesa.
9.) With Lit-Up Palm Trees
You have to make due with what you've got, right?
8.) Like the "Ditto" Lady
The "ditto" trend of pointing to a neighbor's display is an Arizona original.
7.) With an Overdressed Santa
It might hit 80 degrees this week -- why is this guy wearing a heavy coat?
6.) With The Yule Log Channel
Because A.) Who actually has a fireplace, and B.) Thanks to the air quality, holidays are always no-burn days anyway.
5.) With This Thing
Sorry for getting the song stuck in your head.
4.) With the Walmart Special
We all have someone in our neighborhood who has every piece of plastic Christmas decoration ever offered at Walmart.
3.) With Lit-Up Cacti
2.) With Nothing
An Arizona classic.
1.) With a Cactus Santa

New Jersey might get snow, but they don't have plants that can be dressed up as Santa. Take that, east coast!
