If you have been a Moon Valley homeowner for any length of time, you will most likely have enjoyed the Illuminaria tradition each Christmas eve. Were you aware that the Illuminaria has been going on since 1969? What a delight to see residents from all over Greater Phoenix driving through Moon Valley, enjoying the fruits of our neighbors’ decorating. Lighting the candles, talking to each of the neighbors, wishing Moon Valley home owners good cheer; so much enjoyment. If Moon Valley property owners are not going to be home that night, neighbors are often thoughtful enough to light theirs for them.
