Christmas in the Gardens has been a big part of the holiday season for over a decade.  It's become a family tradition for my family.  We go and experience the Amarillo Botanical Gardens every year.  It's a magical time.

When the Amarillo Botanical Gardens light up it feels like it is officially Christmas. What makes Christmas in the Gardens so special? For some, it's just the Christmas feeling it brings. For others, it is seeing their children's eyes light up at the sight of all the lights. It's the perfect place for a date or a romantic environment to pop the question. It's also a great place to take pictures and make memories with your friends and family.
