KLM Lost & Found service

KLM’s dedicated Lost & Found team at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is on a mission to reunite lost items as soon as possible with their legitimate owner. From a teddy bear found by the cabin crew to a laptop left in the lounge. Locating the owners can sometimes be a challenge, so special forces have been hired…
And remember: if it happens to you, the KLM Social Media team is always there for you on Facebook and Twitter!

New York’s most extravagant Christmas lights are in Brooklyn’s Dyker Heights – where residents spend up to $20,000 on decorations every year

Most of the elaborate decorations are erected not by homeowners, but by local decorating companies, including B&R Christmas Decorators and Creative Christmas Decorators. Small signs posted on each lawn signify which company was used.

Made famous in the PBS documentary Dyker Lights and seen on TLC’s Crazy Christmas Lights, the glitzy light displays draw more than 100,000 visitors each December.

The tradition began in the Eighties on 84th Street when resident Lucy Spada irritated the neighbors with her garden decorations.

But residents quickly decided that what they couldn’t beat, they would join. Now every year from the week after Thanksgiving to the first weekend in January, an eight-block section on the neighborhood’s south side becomes a glowing winter wonderland, with the corner with 12th Avenue having the highest concentration of festive lights in the area.

Houses display motorized dolls, miniature villages, giant snowman, moving carousels and thousands upon thousands of strung Christmas lights.

Spook-tacular! From decorating your pumpkin with FAKE NAILS to cooking up a fiendishly tasty feast, MARTHA STEWART shares her tips for hosting a perfectly horrifying Halloween

I cannot remember one single year that I personally did not celebrate Halloween. As a child, I was a devoted trick-or-treater.

I loved it when neighbors went to the trouble to spook or scare or delight, letting us children know that fun, games, and tongue-in-cheek behavior were acceptable and expected.

Nowadays, I get dressed up in a costume, apply a bit of special-effects make-up, even tinted contact lenses. I’m thrilled by each otherworldly transformation. And I enjoy nothing more than sharing timeless spine-tingling tricks and lots of brand-new takes on treats.

I hope you’ll be inspired to spook something new and different this season!
