I have seen that ... it really is beautiful

I'm going to have to check to see if they light ours up, but both my wife and I don't think they do. Really kind of disappointing. Maybe we will head down tomorrow and check to see, but I don't think they do.

Jami, it is awesome isn't it? ;-)

Todd, that's interesting. Maybe there's some kind of city ordinance or something? I'll share pictures of our's with you if not. ;-)

Merry Christmas

Teri,

What a beautiful display! Did you take this photo? I wish I was this talented at taking night-time photos. I'm still trying to figure them out....

Teresa, ;-)

Jo-Anne, yep, I sure did....took lots of them. My camera has the option for night photos...apparently it opens the lens longer? I'm still learning. ;-)

Terry, the grounds are covered with people enjoying the spirit and the lights. ;-)

Merry Christmas

Teri, very nice!  I think that they look so elegant with the lights!  I haven't been to Mesa yet, but Los Angeles, Salt Lake, and the rest of the Wasatch Front Temples are all gorgeous!

Hi Teri...Wow 750,000 Lights would be a great display.

What a beautiful picture.  The only temple I have seen decorated for Christmas is SLC.  I love the idea of the nativity scene and musical performances.  Merry Christmas!

Tony and Darcy, it's definitely a bright spot in our desert! ;-)

Fred, 750,000 lights definitely enhance such a beautiful edifice. ;-)

Janna, I've not seen Salt Lake City or any other temple lit up, but for the Los Angeles Temple. Beautiful!

Merry Christmas

Teri,

What a beautiful photo.  There's a magic about the water reflecting the building, the lights, and the nativity.

OK, found out that we have no lights at the Portland (Lake Oswego) temple and that is because we don't have a visitors center... No visitors center, no lights.

Todd, wow! I learn something new every day. I had no clue! Thanks for the update. ;-)
