Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were especially JOYFUL on Temple Square

Roman Guard Curtis and Garrison Commander Seppi guard the West Gate

 Our Christmas Posada found Sisters looking all over Temple Square for the Manger and the Christ Child.  They  found Roman Guards, Isaiah, Sisters of the Shepherds, Angels and 3 WiseWomen, before they ended their quest at the South Visitors' Center to watch the Nativity.   The true spirit of Christmas was felt that night as we celebrated the birth of our Savior.

They  sang so guard would let them enter Bethlehem

 Angel Sisters Chatterton and Back

Sisters of the Shepherds are excited by what they saw

Isaiah Frost prophecies about the future


Wonderful Christmas Eve Dinner
