The holidays are the only time of the year when it's appropriate to point at a dead plant and expect a kiss. Channel your mistletoe horticultural failure into romance, then reward yourself with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two kids all-day ride passes ($40 value) to The Festival of Lights holiday season kick-off party in Ahwatukee (admission to the festival is free). On November 27, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., more than a million lights will line Chandler Boulevard from 24th St to Desert Foothills Parkway. This family friendly festival creates a carnival world where kids (ages 2 through 12) can release their energy stores on endless rides and entertainment, while parents shop at the Marketplace Street Fair and tipple in the beer garden. After filling up on dizziness, families can watch and listen to performances by the Kyrene del Pueblo Show Choir, the Ahwatukee Nutcracker Ballet, and more. At 6 p.m., the roar of a Harley Davidson Parade reverberates through the bodies of specators, who eagerly await the Santa Hog.
