MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Has the Times Square Ball ever not been dropped on New Year’s Eve?

The Times Square ball has lit up NYC on New Year’s Eve at midnight every year since 1907. There has only been two times in history when it didn’t. Both happened during the World War II light restrictions in 1942 and 1943. Times Square had to remain dark on New Years Eve and there was no ball drop.

But even the pandemic we are in now didn’t stop the ball from dropping last year and it will be in all it’s glistening glory tomorrow night to welcome in 2022.
