Nestled in the heart of Draper City Park in Utah, a lone willow tree lights up the crisp Christmas air with over 1,000 strands of lights.  This tree, seemingly ablaze with white fire, symbolizes so much more than the light and warmth of the season.  It has become a living symbol of the love of Christ—a vision from the Book of Mormon come to life.

One look at this heavenly willow and it’s easy to see where the name comes from. “In an LDS area like Draper, a lot of people just pictured it as the ‘Tree of Life’ and it caught on,” says Luke Walker who oversaw the lighting of the tree.

This gorgeous Christmas display has become a favorite for families around Utah. But for those who won't get a chance to see this stunning tree this season, here are a few fun photos of the tree in all its glory.

For more about how many lights it took to make this tree a reality and how much the display cost, click here.
