The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess puts on quite the festivities this time of year. Christmas at the Princess is fun for the entire family and it's one of my family's favorite events. For starters, there's a massive tree covered in lights synchronized to your favorite holiday tunes. You can visit with Santa. Buy a s'mores kit and make s'mores at one of the fire pits. Ride the rides, go ice skating, and, best of all, take a scenic train ride through many more light displays. See some of the
