Creche landing: Shedding light on the holiday display at City Hall

Santa's Parade of Lights starts this weekend, but with all the crowds downtown, you might not get close enough to the Denver City and County Building to see what a mishmash has been installed on the steps -- the better to balance the nativity scene and help the city avoid a pesky lawsuit. Yes, the goofy elves are back, along with plenty of candy canes and other secular signs of the season.

As a public service, we've documented the holiday display for those who can't see it for themselves (but your really should try). Let there be blight!
