It's a first: an LDS Christmas celebration at Temple Square with a Latin flair.

It's called "El regalo de navidad," and it is the Christmas story with songs from Spain and Latin America, scheduled to fill Temple Square from Dec. 6 through Dec 8.

"I have invited my Catholic friends to come," former Director of the State Office of Hispanic Affairs Tony Yapias said.

Yapias points out that 80 percent of Utah Hispanics are catholic, 15 percent are LDS. "What a beautiful way to bring our cultures together, our songs and music and dance," he said.

He expects nearly 80,000 to attend the events that are almost sold out. For more information on the celebration, click the related link.
