The military has decided to allow a tower on Mountain Aegibong near the western border with North Korea to be decorated with lights for the first time in seven years to mark Christmas.

The military said Wednesday that it has accepted Yoido Full Gospel Church’s request to set up a Christmas tree and decorate the tower on the mountain with lights.

The lighting ceremony will be held on December 21st.

Christmas lights on the tower at Aegibong have been prohibited in line with the second inter-Korean military agreement that bans any propaganda activities in the Demilitarized Zone. The agreement was reached in June of 2004.
