There are Christmas lights and then, there are Christmas lights.

Even if you're not a Pink Floyd fan, you cannot sit there and tell me, this Pink Floyd themed house isn't awesome.

I go out every year and take pictures of Christmas lights in the Greater Danbury area and we have some impressive local displays but no matter how intricate, they don't touch this. It's the simplicity that makes it work.

Whoever is responsible for this certainly did not work all that hard. They would not make it on the ABC reality show "The Great Christmas Light Fight" but I think they should. This is better than any overblown display. It's simple, clean and a very recognizable symbol, that is a winner for me. Now, I want to steal the idea and do a Christmas light display in the shape of the Rolling Stones lips.

For our younger readers, the symbol in the Instagram post, is a take off the Pink Floyd album cover for their 1973 record "Dark Side of the Moon."

The "Dark Side" triangle is so recognizable because everyone had this album. I had it and I was born in 1979, it's been a constant popular album in America and the U.K for decades. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, "Dark Side of the Moon" ended up spending a record 741 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 200 chart.

This symbol is something we all know, the colors are pretty, this is the best XMAS light display of all-time.

P.S. Hey kids, ask your dad about syncing this album with the movie Wizard of Oz or you can Google it, it's a lot of fun, especially when you're in the right head space.

P.S. 2 - The Great Christmas Light Fight is a great show.

Former Brewster Bar Now a Popular Gourmet Bakery Called 'General Bakeshop'

Back in April of 2021, I noticed some signs of life in a building I, and so many other Brewster people are familiar with. Construction was underway at a former bar known as “Norm’s.” Right around that time, I wrote an article about the bar’s history and looked forward to see what would come of the space. The building recently began it’s new chapter and I had to go down and check out the new General Bakeshop to see how the work came out and how the food was. 

Danbury in Photos 2021

It's that time of year where media outlets inundate you with a braggard list of all the work they've done for the year. By December, everyone is pretty much out of ideas anyway. This is sort of like that. The following are photos I took of Danbury, CT for stories I wrote about the Hat City in 2021.
