Christmas at Temple Square

By November 23, 2009

Follow me on:

Every year The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints celebrates Christmas in Salt Lake City, Utah by decorating Temple Square with an amazing lighted display. The lights are first lit the Friday following Thanksgiving and "Christmas on Temple Square" will begin.

Christmas events (see the Church calendar) are performed almost every day of the season, including the musical production Savior of the World, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert, and the First Presidency Christmas Devotional.

The devotional is usually held the first Sunday in December and will be broadcast from the Conference Center (free tickets are required) to church buildings world wide. All are welcome to come and enjoy the devotional in Temple Square or watch the broadcast from a local Stake Center.

If you've never seen the lights on Temple Square they're well worth the trip. Come celebrate with us Christmas and the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
