VinceL posted a topic in Lights, Lights, Lights!I've been somewhat disappointed by this year's Christmas Light Fight. My specific issues are: 1. They don't go behind the scenes as much as in the past. I want to see light controllers, extension cords, how the wiring is organized, use of the software, wireless vs. wired, etc. Perhaps ABC should have either an extra half-hour of behind the scenes stuff or maybe do that on their website. 2. I want to know what these houses/neighborhoods look like on a typical evening leading up to Christmas. There has been an increasing focus on "special shows" (singing, dancing, the special ceremony to turn on the lights, etc.) when the judge arrives. I want to see a "normal" evening when no judges are around. Friends of mine who are not into lots of decorating have commented to me about how these "special shows" don't reflect a normal evening. 3. I am only interested in seeing displays that are put up by family and friends. Last year, it was particularly obvious that some homes had been decorated by a bunch of professionals / hired workers. It doesn't seem to be so flagrant like it was last year. I want to extend thanks to all of the families who participate in the Christmas Light Fight. You all do an amazing job. And a special congratulations to the neighborhoods who participated this week. It's one thing for someone to decorate their own home months in advance, but getting a whole neighborhood to do so is quite an accomplishment.
