My parents are currently serving a mission for the LDS Church at the New Zealand Temple in Hamilton. They are in charge of an annual Temple Lights celebration that draws thousands of people to the temple grounds each season. In many ways it is similar to the displays on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, except it’s 70 degrees outside and the lights are wrapped around palm trees!

Temple Square at Christmas is best known for its lights, but you should also check out the many nativity displays depicting the Savior’s birth. I especially liked the design of the international versions of the nativity this year, emphasizing the universality of Christ’s mission and importance. If you haven’t been yet, take the opportunity! Great for the kids too.
