Wednesday after Christmas, we decided to go downtown to see the lights and Christmas displays at Temple Square. I thought that since Christmas was over, the crowds would be gone or at least a lot smaller. They weren't. Also, I didn't realize that there was a Jazz game playing that night. We gave up trying to find a spot or a lot and parked in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building parking lot and prepared to pay $2 per hour. We parked just before 8 pm and didn't leave until after 10. The building closed at 10, so when we left the garage - since no one was there to take our payment, we got to park for free. Yay!
The weather was excellent and the lights were lovely. We introduced the kids to the Assembly Hall and the Tabernacle where there was an organist playing. We watched the nativity display and walked around the Visitor's Centers, and took a lot of pictures.
