Sorry to hear that but it does seem to be a growing trend this year. Lots of threads on the same subject. I thought I would be there too but I somehow pulled out of my funk in the nick of time. I understand the feeling though. Hope to see you back next year! :)

i was on the verge of not setting up this year as well, due to not getting my MIB and ankle blaster not finished. those are pretty small dilemmas but i guess when i took a final look at my monster mud reaper last night, i decided to put everything out. i guess ill have to put those two projects to work for next halloween.

This is why we only go big on Halloween every other year. I always decorate outside but I tone back my walkthrough to alternating years. I also limit my Halloween audience to close friends and family. They are the ones who really appreciate my hard work. As a matter of fact it's been 3 years since my last big Halloween. I took a year off because of my daughter's wedding. I almost took this year off too but then I realized I needed a Halloween break.

I don'lt know if it will work for you but sometimes taking a break can help freshen the spirit. Just sit back and enjoy the time of year. Maybe take a trip to someplace that bolsters the Halloween spirit. Sometimes we burden ourselves to the point where the fun is gone. If that's the case then step back and decide where you want to go next.

I agree with the above advice, take it easy - maybe enjoy some of the attractions this year. I was delaying working on our haunt this year as it seemed too overwhelming for just me to pull off, but my oldest daughter stepped up and helped all last weekend and we should have a great one this year. It sounds like the harshest critics are ourselves.

I guess some folks drift into it, and some drift out of it. It's my first year for any real yard display, and I cannot wait to start on next year's.

Hopefully the radioactive infecting bed bugs bite and you'll be back in force for 2015.
Feels awesome when you haven't even gone through your first year of a display and you are already thinking about next year's plans..

I feel the same way! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween but it just hasn't happened for me this year! Im hoping to decorate some tomorrow...but just having a really hard time getting into it! I think part of the problem is the I have SO MUCH stuff and I'm so overwhelmed that I just don't know where to start so I give up. :( Hoping going to a Halloween party will get me into the Spirit! I haven't even watched any scary sitcoms this week which is so unlike me!
