Yes, I am aware that the title of this post rhymes. That’s what’s up.

I’ve been a terrible blogger. Just haven’t been able to make time to update the dear old City Mitten but it’s about to be a new year and I have a feeling 2012 is going to be pretty damn good.

I just had my mom and older sister in town with me for Christmas and it was awesome. I would definitely do Christmas in New York again. I did it last year, but with family it is even more fun.

One of the things we did was venture to Dyker Heights, a neighborhood in Brooklyn known for their Christmas lights every year. I’ve been wanting to check them out ever since I learned they existed. It was my first time in Dyker Heights and I had no idea what to expect. But it was nice. And some of the houses were HUGE! We walked blocks and blocks and wondered to ourselves who were all these people who live here? I’d like to know.

Some craziness below:

Like I said, crazy. But cool. Can you imagine if you moved into this neighborhood in the summer, completely clueless, and then winter rolls around and BAM your neighborhood blows up with 10,000 light up Santas and reindeer? You’d pretty much have to participate or spend the winter in Florida, I think.

I’m very glad we went. Next time I’d consider renting a car so you can drive around and see more things, although it was cool to be able to see in creepy detail the faces of all the different Santas and all the different random dolls.

Hope your Christmas was merry and bright!
