Join us on our day-by-day tour of the holidays with events and things to do all over Utah. From the lights at Temple Square to the Santa Pub Crawl, Salt Lake magazine celebrates every day of the holiday season. Be Merry.


A new Twas the Night Before Christmas animated story and more than 200 other displays light up the Hogle Zoo during the holidays.

Since it's a Tuesday, the crowds will be smaller, and nobody will block your path when you're trying to get a photo of all those cute animals helping put the star on the tree. Or go this Thursday with a $3 discount from any Northern Utah Little Caeser's.

Sip hot chocolate and also check out the zoo’s nocturnal creatures, including the big cats.

Zoolight's countdown to New Year's is at 9 p.m. this year, so the kids will still get to bed at a decent time. Bring the whole family. Admission all holiday season is only $6 for adults and $4 for kids. Open Dec. 4 to 31. 2600 Sunnyside Ave., 801-582-1631.
