News

BOERNE, Texas (KXAN) — A Hill Country family has a tradition and it is lighting up the neighborhood. This year the Hinojosa family is honoring Selena, the late queen of Tejano, with a Christmas light show.

The family lives on Shadow Knolls in Boerne, about 90 minutes from Austin.

They posted their video on Saturday on Facebook, and since then its been viewed more than a million times, and shared by thousands.

KXAN reached out to the family to find the story behind the display. “We’ve been doing it for 4 years now,” a Hinojosa family member said. “Each year we add a few unique ones in addition to the Christmas ones we have. When Selena got her Hollywood star I played the song to my 3-year-old and he started singing it.”

The family is also honoring our nation’s military with a display to raise awareness for Warrior Chef.

If you are wondering about their light bill, the family uses LED Christmas lights, and they say their bill does not go up.
