Some people pay thousands of dollars for professional assistance in transforming their property. One house had a Toy Land theme with carousels and another hosted a crowd scene of Christmas characters.
I liked the fat golden snowflakes on another house.
This Santa and snowman helicopter with twirling propeller was a cute one.
I also spotted Captain America on one porch, and Minions in front of another house.
On the way back to the D train in Bensonhurst, we stopped by a Nativity scene that was more a landscape with lots of activity round the manger and people going about their daily lives. Reminded me of a Bruegel painting.
Even though I don't celebrate Christmas, I find winter holiday light displays cheerful and fun to look at (also lovely if I'm walking after dark through the city). This walk was like licking frosting from a cake for a couple of hours.
To anyone celebrating Christmas, have a happy day. And to all, a wonderful new year.
