Cinderella, Cher, Michael Jackson... and Santa... in the Bronx

Sometimes we all need an adventure.  Yesterday  was one - to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, the true 'Little Italy.'  Shopped for fresh mozzarella, sweet Italian sausage, right-out-of-the-oven olive bread, marzipan cookies.  Had dinner at old-style Italian restaurant -- Marios - on Arthur Avenue with husband and kids.  Veal parmigina.  Highly recommend.  Then, we drove to Pelham Parkway.... stopped along Williamsbridge Road and Morris Park Avenue, and remembered being four-and-a-half, living here.  We drove further down Pelham Parkway and found what we were truly looking for The New York Christmas House (yes, someone's actual home - the Garabedien family - a family of costume designers!) decorated with over 200 costumed mannequins  --from Cinderella to Cher to Mickey to Santa on the roof -- and lights --and crowds all in good cheer at the spectacle!  An adventure!!

Last thought:  looking for a different holiday present -- signed copies of LIE now available at Barnes & Noble in Carle Place and at Book Revue in Huntington!  (And yes, that's Michael Jackson behind Cher).  Joy of the season to all!!

Great piece of writing regarding the wedding music and dance. Music and dance both are extremely changing the complete environment
