Virtually every neighborhood and the city streets are aglow with colorful lights for the Christmas season. People marvel at the beauty of the lights as they drive around.

It is often a very big expense for a lot of people and businesses to put up Christmas lights for the holiday season. The lights are for the enjoyment of friends, neighbors, and strangers who drive by in their cars. The bright and colorful lights add to the festive nature of Christmas. The lights are there for a month or two and then they generally disappear.

Some lights remain on the city streets of downtown Salt Lake City. Even though it is now the second week of February, some people still want to enjoy the bright lights.

Most people have turned off their Christmas lights and/or removed them from the trees and houses. The lights were an important part of Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving and all through December. Many of the lights remained on during January this year, but most have been turned off now as the year progresses. Some remain to brighten up the city.

The Utah State Capitol was not decorated with colorful Christmas lights during the holidays. It was often lit up at night with the interior lights. It was a beautiful sight, and it is still pretty when the lights are turned on at night.

After leaving the downtown area of Salt Lake City and going up State Street, the Capitol sits at the top of the hill on State Street. It is always a sight to behold whether it is the holiday season or not.

In about two more months from now the cherry blossoms will be out to surround the Capitol and bring glorious color to the area. It will be a great time to take a trip to the Capitol as the cherry trees make a circle around the grounds.

Millions of people have traveled to Washington, D.C. in the Spring to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The cherry blossoms are a major tourist attraction in the nation's capital.

Utah residents and visitors can enjoy the same type of beauty here in Salt Lake City at the Utah State Capitol. It is something to look forward to in April.
