Day 10: Mormon Christmas Traditions

Sing, choirs of angels
Sing in exultation
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above

While Latter-day Saints don't observe Advent, they've developed their own set of Christmas traditions. Stop by a Visitor Center near one of the Mormon temples during December and you're likely to see massive illuminated displays, intricate outdoor Nativity scenes, or elaborate gingerbread villages. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has recorded Christmas carols with top performers around the world.
