SO SO SO SO sorry for missing Blogmas yesterday, but my family went out Christmas shopping last night and watched a movie really late so yeah…

WARNING: These are my own beliefs, and in no way do I mean to offend anyone.

 

 

First off, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We believe that Christ’s true birthday is April 6th, but that the wise men reached Christ on Christmas. We still celebrate the life of Christ at this time, just as most people.

There isn’t really anything different per say that we do. We still use Santa Claus and give out presents and everything else that has to do with Christmas normally. One really cool thing we do is lighting up temple square.

Temple square is the area and buildings around our temple in Salt Lake City, which is sort of the “capital” of our church. I’ll be going to see them this year on Wednesday with my young men and young women’s groups as a church activity.

Here are some pictures of what temple square looks like during the holidays:

Sorry if this post was kind of confusing, if you have any questions just comment below. I’m happy to help! I would also like to add that there are many, many other temples around the world, this one is just in the area where “Mormons” predominantly live.

Love ya’ll and Merry Christmas Eve^19
