The Queens Courier found two neighboring houses in Bayside shining bright for the holidays.

The houses, located on 56th Avenue and 214th Street, light up with different colors all around and are synchronized to various holiday tunes, including “Carol of the Bells”  by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

In the window you can find Santa Claus moving about and Frosty the Snowman, together with reindeer, nutcrackers and Santa’s little helpers on the lawn of both houses.

Christmas tree made up of only lights stands tall between the two homes, with Disney characters making their way up the tree to Mickey Mouse topping it off.

If you want to share photos or videos of your home’s holiday lights or other houses you see celebrating the holidays, email ctumola@queenscourier.com. Your photos or videos could appear on our website, Twitter, Facebook or in our paper.

Three . . . two. . . one. . . holiday lights!

To kick off the holiday season, hundreds of people of all ages gathered for the ninth annual tree lighting ceremony at Queens Center Mall this past weekend.

With special guests, including Santa Claus, children and adults were dancing to the DJ’s music as they welcomed the holiday season.
