Report Am I Just Abnormal- Losing Intrest In DIY Direct Control of Hardware Posted December 6, 2012 I have been doing animated displays since 2008 and I am now just starting to loose interest in doing holiday lights completely. I just feel that it’s becoming too commercialized and too many people are doing synchronized displays that it’s no longer something that’s one of a kind. Almost like when inflatables came into production it was such a cool thing to have that everyone would envy the owner, now you see them all over the place. I’m not getting jealous of the larger displays and losing hope because of that, it’s just that I don’t think it’s worth the time to put everything up to put up with: nightly police visits, angry neighbors, a 14 year old who lives in the next town over trying to put down my show with threatening notes in my donation box, and the vandals. I was recently given the opportunity to be featured in the latest 2012 Best Buy holiday gift ads which I respectfully declined, and today I get an email asking me to be part of a show starting in 2013 about holiday light displays which I have respectfully declined. What do you think the problem is?
