There are amazing Christmas light displays and experiences all over Idaho. Unfortunately, it's rare for them to rank as high on national lists as the classic Christmas on Temple Square experience in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Christmas on Temple Square returns with a dazzling display of lights and festive cheer this year, despite ongoing construction and renovations; that isn't going to prevent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from continuing the 58-year tradition of lighting up the area during the Christmas season.

According to Church officials, these enchanting lights might be in different sections of Temple Square due to the construction, but they've shared a map that will be helpful for visitors.

The lights will be on from 3:30-10:00pm every evening and from 6:00-8:00am every morning until New Year’s Day. While some areas remain closed or have limited access due to construction, the magical ambiance persists, inviting visitors to revel in the holiday spirit.

Even while being closed the last few years for construction, Christmas on Temple Square ranks in the 25 over-the-top Christmas displays in the country, according to Stacker. The area transforms into a winter wonderland, including multiple live nativity scenes, Christmas concerts, and guided tours.
