Christmas Lights

The Pahrump Valley Times is looking for area residents who do more than hang some lights outside to celebrate the holidays.

We are looking to put together a map of the few who turn their houses into shrines celebrating the spirit of Christmas and the holiday season.

Send us your address if you would like to be part of a map of the showcased homes published Friday, Dec. 19 as a self-guided driving tour of the homes.

The deadline to enter, complete with the address, the homeowner’s name (indicate if you want that included in the list) and a contact phone number (not for publication), will be Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. Those items must be in our offices by that deadline.

Please email the information to cdean@pvtimes.com, or mail the information to our office to Charlene Dean c/o PVT, 1570 E. Highway 372, Pahrump, NV 89048. Or you can drop it by or office Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You may include a photo that may run in the newspaper, space and awesomeness permitting.
