Last night, December 3rd, 2016, I went to see the Christmas Lights display in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, NY. It was damp and chilly. Every so often the wind made the large evergreen trees in front of the mini-mansions sway to and fro. Most of the area is still in the process of setting up their displays. I wasn’t sure how much I’d see but decided to go. I will be involved with several work related events this month so I decided to make the most of my day off.
To my surprise several mini-mansions, as well as the smaller 1 and 2 family houses, already had their displays in place. The most popular themes I saw last night featured Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Bigger homes had their trees and shrubbery adorned with lights so that no figures were necessary. The very big gardens that still featured large displays were big on well known Christmas characters such as The Nutcracker, The Wooden Soldiers, The Little Drummer Boy and Santa.
I hope you’ll enjoy this short tour of the best displays I saw last night. I’m releasing these photos into the public domain. You may circulate or re-use. A link back to this posting would be appreciated.
