EVG reader boxysean brings us this breaking news today:
The Christmas tree lights are on! It's a New Year's miracle!
The workers were talking about how they were changing the ballast.
As previously reported, the lights went dark several days before Dec. 25, and remained off the entire holiday season. It makes sense that they are working again on this Jan. 18.
Meanwhile, the mysterious hole near the tree remains in place, mysteriously.
