The WEJL tower is all lit up for the holiday season, and it's a spectacular sight. You can see it for miles, and it always gives me a happy feeling when I look down from Interstate 81 on my way to work-- and I'm not a Christmas guy.
This photo was taken around 3 AM Friday. There are times the tower is shut off for the overnight hours. I hope the "all night" is here until the new year. It's quite a sight any time, especially when it's the dead of night, and the surroundings are almost totally dark.
For the last few years, the Scranton Times~Tribune has been throwing a big party on tower lighting night-- the night before Thanksgiving, and I think that's fantastic. Things like First Night, First Fridays, and the Italian Festival keep the streets active in to the evening, and the city certainly needs more of that.
