Is it just me or does it seem like they have been putting up less lights at Temple Square? I remember there being a lot more even just a few years ago.

@CAB90
You are right. The lights are getting somewhat sparse. Few of the trees on Temple Square itself have them anymore. Big disappointment.

CAB90 and Silver Stingray, I read somehwere that it's damaging to the trees to string so many lights. This is probably why.
I miss them too.
