Kings County Democratic Chairman Frank Seddio held his much-anticipated house lighting extravaganza on Sunday, Dec. 4. Each year Seddio invites family, friends, elected officials, community leaders and children of all ages to attend this festive event.

But this year’s holiday display had extra special significance. The house lighting was dedicated to the memory of Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson, who passed away on Oct. 9. Thompson’s wife and children attended the event which took place at the Seddio family home at 9306 Flatlands Avenue.

There were hundreds of people who came to enjoy the winter wonderland that featured a live nativity scene with animals. There was a special guest appearance by Santa Claus, who was there to greet all the children.

Elected officials attending included New York state Sen. Roxanne Persaud, Councilmember Alan Maisel and Brooklyn Councilmember Vincent Gentile. Community leader Judy Newton of the Newton Foundation was also in attendance.

The clergy was represented by the Rev. Msgr. Jamie Gigantiello, vicar of development for the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and the Rev. Msgr. Peter Kain, pastor of St. Ephrem Catholic Church in Dyker Heights.

The event featured holiday music by the chorus of P.S. 115 and the choir of St. Bernard’s Church.
