Holiday Lights Show, Bronx, NYI was driving down Pelham Parkway North in the Baychester, Bronx neighborhood when I happened upon this house covered with amazing Christmas figurines. As soon as I saw it, I instantly remembered learning of this house on TLC's Crazy Christmas show. I pulled the car over immediately to investigate. This spectacular home has been a traffic-stopping must-see for 40 years. The house is known in the area by many names - Pelham Christmas House, Bronx Christmas House and the Garabedian House. The owner Gary Garabedian and his family members construct this most festive holiday delight which is a true feast for the eyes. The holiday lights show will begin on Thanksgiving day and runs until January 6. The house is located on Pelham Parkway North & Westervelt Ave.
George Balachine's The Nutcracker, Manhattan, NYThis beautiful ballet is a holiday favorite. The New York City Ballet will transport the audience to a world of frost fairies, toy soldiers and towering mice. This is a great idea for families and children of all ages. Performances begin Friday, November 29 and remain until January 4.David H. Koch Theater (at Lincoln Center).
