The weather was unseasonably warm during the beginning of this week … all the way up to near 70 degrees! As I drove back from Boston I saw people in Central Park wearing only tee shirts and shorts – in late December. We decided it would be a perfect balmy night to see the crazy over-the-top holiday lights in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn. The light show didn’t disappoint and for the first time we could get out of the car and walk around, without freezing.

Hope you are enjoying your week everyone!

When we were young, my brothers and I would’ve gone bananas to know there was a brightly lit house that we could tour ON THE INSIDE as well as view the outside. This crazy house in Torrington Connecticut (see their facebook page here) is definitely worth a visit. In fact I’d venture to guess it may become a national treasure some day. Not only is the exterior ablaze with Christmas love, but inside we toured 3 floors stuffed full of mechanical dolls, trains, and other holiday paraphernalia. The sign at the entrance isn’t lying – there are over 500 mechanical dolls in there (and notice that the number on the sign seems to change). We did manage to find at least one (maybe 2) menorahs in the windows. If you go 2 days after Christmas as we did, there won’t be any crowds. At least, not of people – we did still feel very crowded by dolls!
