The Christmas tree across from the Hydrostone market is only partly lit up. Everything looks fine from one angle, but when you walk around to the other side—Christmas is ruined. 

The Christmas tree across from the Hydrostone market is only partly lit up. Everything looks fine from one angle, but when you walk around to the other side—Christmas is ruined.


Remarks: When we called the HRM info line, we were told that the businesses and the community in the Hydrostone area are responsible for erecting the tree. But while on a reconnaissance mission, we talked to a friendly business owner who told us that the city was in charge. No matter whose fault it is, the problem is simple: the lights on the tree — they just aren’t working. And as anyone who has ever strung mini-lights anywhere can attest, if there is one faulty bulb, the whole string is shot. Now that’s a pain in the ass, but it’s always been a part of the holidays. If Joanna Q. Public can put up with that crap, so can the village it takes to raise the Hydrostone Christmas tree.


Who's Responsible?: HRM Building Management Services Department, the community and the businesses in the area. It’s a shared responsibility, apparently.
