One thing is for sure. Salt Lake City loves Christmas. I'd never seen so many lights during the holidays until I moved here. It would be difficult to assess how many lights are used every year, but there must be millions. You can see people in cherry pickers as early as September getting ready for this spectacular show.
We took our grandchild on a horse and buggy ride downtown the other night to enjoy the luminous beauty, and we were not disappointed. It was a cold clear night and wrapped in blankets in the carriage, Daniel and I not only saw the beautiful lights, but the indescribable look of wonder in a two year olds eyes.
Some of the pictures are a little blurry because our horse, Jerry, who offered us a bumpy ride, didn't stop for photo ops.
The famous Mormon Temple.
Jerry provided a lovely ride, even whinnying for us a couple of times. We were very pleased he didn't have beans for dinner.
I pretended I was riding through Central Park, but I'm almost certain this was just as great.

Every branch of every tree is entangled in lights. We're lucky if we get one strand up on our house.
Although this show presents much better in person, this gives you an idea of what a wonderland it is.
