I've never played by the rules. I was absent the day they handed those out. I believe in being kind, playing fair, laughing often, not judging others and drinking red wine. And I always kiss my Sweetie goodnight. It may lead to other fun stuff. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Life is short!  Break the rules!  Forgive quickly!  Kiss slowly! Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably... And never regret anything that made you smile. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Always remember that stressed spelled backwards is desserts. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside. ~ Mark Twain

The Salt Lake City Light Show

Rate: 14 Flag

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.

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.

Sounds like you had a wonderful evening. I bet it was spectacular in person.
rated with love
I lived in SLC for a few years, and this was my favorite thing about downtown. Thank you for the reminder of how magical it was.
Sounds like a magical evening. I just love the colours of the trees.
This was lovely and since I go through SLC every year I know where this is..:)
Your avatar had me at boggle and then I realized it was you hahaha
I love looking at lights, but I wouldn't put up a colored light bulb in my house for $10.. I know not why. If Kramer would have been driving the carriage, the night would have been perfect, hah!
Such pretty images. Have a wonderful holiday season, Christine.
It looks like a wonderland, indeed. I've never visited SLC, especially at this time. Thank you for the pictures, Christine. Glad you had such a magical time.

Maybe the light show is so great because the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sings Christmas music so beautifully.
My first though upon seeing the photos was that I wanted to come there. I love lights! Thanks for sharing.

It's pretty spectacular even in pictures. I can't even imagine the glory of it in person.
Thank you all for your comments. I wish you could see it in person. It is pure magic and really lifts your spirits. When spring comes we'll take pictures again. The spring flowers are amazing downtown.

Scanner, that episode of Seinfeld is what stood out in my mind when we were in the carriage. So funny!
Lovely! Thank you for sharing, missy!
Never imagined Salt Lake City like this!
Oh thanks so much for showing us the light. Seasons Greetings to you and yours.
