Mesa Temple Lights

Another fun thing about being in Arizona for Christmas was seeing the lights at the Mesa Temple. It is fun to see how different temples grounds are set up differently for Christmas. I had seen the LA temple lights and SLC temple lights, but this was my first time seeing the Mesa temple lights. I thought they did a BEAUTIFUL job! They even have people perform every night. Something that I liked that they do differently than the other temples I have seen is that they spread the manger scene out around the grounds. For example... in one spot they have the 3 wise men traveling with their camels to the manger. Above where Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus are there is a big bright star... so while you are walking around the grounds you can find where the baby Jesus was born. Anyway... I just thought it was all very neat and it was a fun Sunday activity for the family.

I've always heard the temple lights at Mesa are amazing. I've never seen them either. My aunt thought they were even prettier than Salt Lake. They look beautiful. The manger scene sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
