Trees of Diversity and It’s Not the End of the World

I guess the world is ending today. But probably not because even the Mayans never said that. Yes, Mayans still exist and they are actually pretty pissed that everyone is spreading fake mysticism about their culture around. And the day is already over in some parts of the world, so you can take all that alcohol, ammunition and zombie repellent you stocked up on and save it for a more worthy cause. Say, new year’s eve.

Aaaanyway. This week I’m featuring the Trees of Diversity exhibit which, though much smaller than it’s more popular counterpart the Festival of Trees, is a nice walk through for a quiet afternoon. The exhibit displays trees and wreaths with international as well as some local themes, nutcrackers and gingerbread houses all put together by members of the Salt Lake City community. If you’re into crafts, Christmas, cultures, or just want somewhere to take your bored small children for an hour, the exhibit is at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley until Dec. 29.

The big photo wigs are starting to come out with their collections of best photos from 2012. A few are below (as well as other things), but I will put up a more comprehensive list next week.
