The Totally Insane Dyker Heights Christmas Decorations

Dyker Heights is a neighborhood in Brooklyn where the neighbors try to outdo each other in Christmas lights and decorations. People come from all over New York City to see them.

There are a few who do not participate in the tradition, and others who keep things simple, but mostly you'll get big, bright, and gaudy... as it should be. A lot of the neighborhood residents rely on professionals to get their displays just right, like B&R Christmas Decorators, who will bedazzle your home with a billion bulbs and animatronics. Others seem to have hoarded away a variety of seasonal lawn ornaments over the years, and simply toss them all out there when the time is right. There is no wrong way to participate.

In case you can’t get there in person, Gaothamist has 28 pictures of the houses lit up in all their glory. If you can get there, they have some advice about your excursion. -via Metafilter
