Washington DC Temple Christmas Lights

We went to the Washington DC Temple on Christmas Eve and expected it to be pretty empty. There were actually lots of people and cars there to see the lights display, and also walk through the Visitor's Center to look at the nativities and other items from around the world. 

Life-sized nativity outside, with music playing and voice-over reading Luke 2.

Pretty stained-glass windows on corner of Temple.

Camel by the nativity.

This was one of two trees with dolls from around the world. Amazing and really neat to see the different dolls. ( Tried, but couldn't find an Italian doll....)

This room displayed nativities or creches from around the world - amazing. Some were made of wood, some stone, some clay, some fabric/wool. 

I really liked this one from Italy - very unique. 

A very meaningful and wonderful Christmas eve activity!
