The National Christmas Tree will be lit up again Monday thanks to a grant from the National Park Foundation. 


Previously, it looked like the damaged tree would stay dark during the government shutdown.

"The National Park Foundation has provided financial support to reopen, operate, and manage the National Christmas Tree site," the National Park Service announced on its website Monday.

The grant will allow the tree, which is located near the White House, to operate and stay open until Jan. 1, according to a local ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C.

Lights on the tree were damaged on Friday when a man tried to climb it and remained dark over the weekend. The Park Service said repairs were complicated by the shutdown.
