It's That Time!

Yup! Believe it or not, it's time to put up Christmas lights!

They put up quite a few decorations here at the Kirtland historic sites. And though it seems awfully early to be putting up lights, we have to start now to get it all done. Especially since we find ourselves dancing between raindrops in addition to just needing the time to get them all up.

And, to this point at least, I seem to have drawn the short straw and have taken the biggest burden for the lights. of course, that is really because I am so talented at it! Yah, right!

But I don't mind.  It will bring a lot of happiness to a lot of people at a very special time of year.

However, lights are not the only thing they do for Christmas.  The Visitors Center will be full of Christmas creches. About 700 of them to be exact!

Unfortunately, we won't be here to see the final result or when the lights are finally all turned on.  Hope someone will send us pictures!

And really, we are not that early with the decorations. Temple Square started over six weeks ago.
