39e-Dyker Heights Christmas Lights, 2016


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.

    • Je suis très heureuse que vous ayez aimé les photos, Anita. C’est vraiment très beau. Mais pour les gens qui vivent sur ces blocs, il devient ennuyeux. Nos journaux locaux disent que les gens ne peuvent pas bien dormir à cause de toute la lumière. Trop de touristes viennent, dans les grands bus, et foule dans les rues.

      Les touristes n’achètent pas de café ou de nourriture de nos cafés locaux ou charcuteries. Ils boivent de la soude ou de la bière qu’ils apportent et laissent des bouteilles partout. Certains propriétaires disent aux journalistes que leurs factures d’électricité sont trop élevées.

      Encore, j’espère que la communauté travaille ces questions parce qu’elle est si belle et est devenue une partie importante des célébrations de la communauté.
