Why Not Just Leave the Lights Up?
The workers at Temple Square are proud of the unique style they’ve cultivated, which includes wrapping each individual tree branch with lights. It’s a laborious process, but it allows the lights to display the tree’s natural form in a beautiful way not normally seen in regular Christmas light displays. The size of a plant changes each year, though, with anywhere from 18 inches to six feet of growth, so the lights used one year may not fit the tree properly the next.
