Christmas Spirit = Found

On Friday night my friend, John and I went to Temple Square in Salt Lake City to see the Christmas lights. It was one of my more enjoyable visits.  Neither of us was in a hurry. We visited all of the buildings that were open to the public.  We read about the temple.  We read the plaques on statues. We spent a moment taking in the Christus statue.  We stood in the cold and listened to the Nativity story.  We talked about our religious views.  We talked about nothing.  It was fun.  It was relaxing.  It helped me find the Christmas spirit.  The only thing missing was snow.

I can't take credit for the pictures.  I found them on Google.

Salt Lake City temple square at Christmas is gorgeous. I went to Mesa last year, but SLC is still my favorite. We were there one year when it was snowing softly and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Glad you could feel that joy. Love you.
