Maybe I'm just getting old and it now takes a lot to impress me, but I was not wowed by the Christmas decorations at City Creek Center.
Because of the story "Downtown Salt Lake City gets new holiday look" (Tribune, Nov. 12), when my friends and I went to see the lights on Temple Square, we ventured a block south to check out Salt Lake's new festive mall. Disappointing. Tasteful, even pretty, but nothing to make a trip from the suburbs for.
I guess I expected or hoped to be overwhelmed by lights, lavish Victorian greenery and unique displays. I wanted overloaded sights and sounds to get me into the Christmas spirit, to feel like shopping. Didn't happen. Too understated.
