The nights around downtown El Paso will be a whole lot brighter through Christmas now that the downtown Christmas tree in San Jacinto Plaza has been officially lit. Led by ABC-7's Estela Casas, the crowd counted down from 3 to 1 on Saturday night signaling Mayor John Cook  to flip the switch on the ten thousand plus lights that decorate the 54-foot tree. Here's what it looked like after the fact. Merry Christmas! Now go spend money and help our local economy :)
