Dyker Heights Christmas Lights

None of us really grew up. We all love the holidays and everything about them. The lights, the candy, the presents, the cinnamon flavored booze and getting to see your family. You HAVE to see them once a year or they’ll start bitching. EVEN really weird religious cousin  that says you’re going to hell. You are BTW its too late to change now, so you might as well enjoy the ride. THe holidays are a perfect time to see them.

This year is a bit different its not as festive. I did my annual trip to the Dyker Heights Christmas lights show and it was WEAK.  Barely half the block that had  Christmas lights or any festive decorations. I remember back in the day ( Yea i just used that saying FML) The WHOLE block was covered with lights. There WERE LINES OF people and cars for blocks.  But this year there maybe have been about 25 people on the block with me. That’s not the Dyker Heights Christmas lights show grew up with at all.  yes the tow main houses had everything lit up like always but

What Happened? Kids Grew Up? I guess? Brooklyn isn’t what it used to be people don’t care anymore.  Nothing is the same. People just dont give a fuck anymore.  Or is it me?  What traditions do you miss?
