Lighting The Lighthouse
What could be more quintessentially Long Island than stringing lights on the Montauk Lighthouse?
It’s not just lighthouses that get lit up. So do our windmills.
The Leg Lamp
A Christmas Story may have been set in Indiana, but the Northport Hardware store was so inspired by the classic movie that the store has held an annual lighting of the famous leg lamp from that flick for years.
Each years, locals reenact the days when a pilot dressed as Santa would drop gifts off for the Fire Island Lighthouse keepers and their families by flying by in small, low-flying airplane.
Deck The Duck
LI’s most iconic roadside attraction, The Big Duck, gets all done up for the holidays with a traditional lighting ceremony each year.
