VIDEO/PHOTOS: Christmas in Temple Square!

Well, it’s Christmas Eve and the family is about to go walk around the city. It is currently 18 degrees and the sun is shining brightly here after a snowy couple of days. I’m always amazed at how flat Salt Lake City is!

Back home, the weather is slowly clearing up after a cloudy/foggy couple of days. Temperatures will also warm slightly, but will remain pretty chilly in the upper 30s/low 40s. Our next chance of precip arrives by the weekend.

Yesterday we took a walk around Temple Square and couldn’t have timed it any better. Big, fluffy flakes were falling all around us as we approached a snowy Nativity scene accompanied by music from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir playing behind us. We had such a great time!

I hope all of you are enjoying this season, home or not. Have a very Merry Christmas everyone! My regular blogging habits will resume on Monday, December 28th.

I’ll leave with this amazing version of “O Holy Night” by the famous a capella group The King’s Singers performing with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir

  1. Thanks for the pic’s Matt. A little foggy here this morning, but now the sun is out. You are right we take our hills and mountains for granted until we visit another part of the country.

  2. Taking a break from kitchen duties and prep, Went to the computer to clear my box. Matt, I so enjoyed seeing your pictures of Temple Square and the music. It was more restful an uplifting than a quick nap. Now I am ready for the rest of a joyful Christmas. Blessing to you and yours. Merry Christmas!

  3. You’re singing with the fabulous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and you don’t go for the high notes at the end which EVERYONE goes for??? Sad. You did no justice to “O Holy Night.”

  4. Oh, I forgot to tell Matt: THANK YOU for the photos of Temple Square…as an LDS, i appreciate them bec i couldn’t be there.
