But what about the other light display that rivals Temple Square at Christmas? Well, take a look . . .

LDS.org states that

The Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial is placed in the hills of Sharon, where the Prophet Joseph Smith was born on December 23, 1805. The memorial is marked by a 38½-foot-tall granite obelisk on a 12-foot base of solid granite. The Church placed the memorial on Joseph’s 100th birthday.

The obelisk itself has one foot of height for each year the Prophet lived. It is currently the tallest polished solid granite obelisk in North America.

The lights and the animal displays are great reminders of the Christmas season—bringing the Christmas spirit and a feeling of joy to visitors. The display will be open each evening throughout December.

  1. The Joseph Smith birthplace is a fabulous place to visit in the summer or autumn too. We were there in September and it was just heavenly. I recommend that everyone make the effort to get there and enjoy the spirit and the beauty of the place.
