Thousands of LED lights spread out over Temple Square and the immediate area were turned on Friday, November 26, 2021 and will remain on through January 1, 2022.

This Christmas season, see an animated nativity projected on the ceiling of the Salt Lake Tabernacle for the first time.

This new presentation, entitled “Peace on Earth,” uses shadow graphics, narration and musical underscore to tell the Christmas story in a child-friendly way that adults will also enjoy.

Showings begin Friday, November 26 and will continue daily every 15 minutes from 4:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. mountain standard time. The presentation lasts about four minutes, and the showings will alternate between Spanish and English. The images and audio tracks from the presentation will be made available at for recreating this Christmas story at home.
