Merry Christmas From Utah.com

We extend to you our warmest Christmas greetings and hope you find peace, joy and love during this special time of year.

Here are ideas about ways to spend the Christmas season in Utah.

Ski the powder. A storm is expected to drop snow tonight, and another may bring fresh powder Christmas Eve. The next few weeks will bring the best ski conditions of the year.

Golf in St George. There is no snow down in Utah’s Dixie. The greens are, well, green, and the sun shines most days. You’ll want to wear a jacket, but you may take it off during the afternoon.

See the lights at Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City. You won’t find a more impressive Christmas light display anywhere. There is also a nativity scene and other displays telling about the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

The Cathedral of the Madeleine Carol Service, Christmas Eve, features chants, motets and carols of the holiday season.

Hike in the desert. Daytime temperatures often climb into the mid 40s, or even into the 50s, in southern Utah at this time of year, making it enjoyable to hike in the sunshine. In the desert the nights are silent, starry and bright.

Merry Christmas.
