Electrifying Christmas magic — enough to knock your stockings off!
Every holiday season, just after Thanksgiving, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Dyker Heights, which stretches from 11th to 13th avenues and from 83rd Street to 86th Street, is transformed into a winter wonderland.
Throngs of all ages flock to the nabe like wise men to Bethlehem to gaze at life-sized Santas, sleds and snowmen — as well as aliens in sports cars; humongous toy soldiers; and mountainous milk and cookies left for Father Christmas.
Subtlety is sidelined. From lawns to rooftops, every inch of property is covered with illuminated choirboys, angels, wreaths and snowflakes.
