Happy Thanksgiving

We hope you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving season.

Many Utah businesses will be closed Thursday for the holiday. Most travel-related businesses will be open and many will offer specials for holiday travelers.

Many restaurants, particularly those associated with hotels, will offer Thanksgiving dinners. Gas stations and convenience stores will be open, but most other businesses will be closed.

On Friday, Utah will kick off the Christmas season with "Black Friday" sales and other activities.

The Salt Lake City Downtown Alliance will present its annual Lights On! celebration at Gallivan Plaza Friday evening from 4:45-6 p.m. At dusk, the downtown area will come alive with Christmas lights.

Nearby, Temple Square offers one of the most famous Christmas lights displays in the U.S., featuring more than a million bulbs. The lights attract large numbers of visitors and so traffic will be heavy around the Square throughout the Christmas season.

The Desert News has this interesting article about the history of Christmas lights at Temple Square.
