MSN Travel lists Denver's holiday lights display among the planet's best

We Denverites tend to feel unnoticed and underappreciated by citizens of the larger world. But don't blame the folks at MSN Travel, who included Denver among the global cities with the finest holiday lighting exhibitions. "Lighting Up the World," the slideshow in question, places our fair city in tony company. Also cited Jerusalem, Bogotá, London, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin and New York City. True, Denver's listed fourteenth among the fifteen locales recognized -- but this one time, can't we look at the glass as half full?

Lighting Up the World

Thousands of jewel-toned floodlights transform Denver's City & County Building into one of the world's largest holiday light displays. Nearby in the city core, you can also see amazing lights at landmarks such as Union Station, Skyline Park, the historic D & F Tower and the 116-year-old Brown Palace luxury hotel.
