We have had temperatures in the mid 30’s tonight. We had a total of 60 kids show up all night . Very discouraging when 10 years ago we were pushing over 200. I had a big list of things I wanted to make next year but now having second thoughts after all the time I put in this year. My wife said you put in a lot of money (she pays the credit card bill) and time for these few tots. The ones that did show up loved what I did and were excited when they knocked on the door.
I was going to get started on next year tomorrow but I think I will now take a few weeks off and take a rest instead.

Our temps stayed at 45 degrees which I will take with no rain. Last year it was 80 on this day.
We had around 1000-1200 Tot's.... mostly very young little kids then some older. It was a blast!

Every year we get less & less & I do less & less.

I don't feel totally wasted this year but the last thing I want to do right now is turn off all the lights in the 50+ fakekins that are sitting in my living room in front of me right now.

It was cold here too and I had fewer kids. Probably around 75-100. In the past I've had around 200. I really think it's the cold. To quote a movie (we know what movie) "Build it and they will come." But at the same time I understand all the time and money and hardly anyone comes to enjoy.

we had about 50 total tonight, which is an all time record for me. I can usually count all the visitors I get on my hands. At one time there were about 20 just standing and staring in the street, so I'm happy.

Do you do it for them or do you do it for yourself? I do my display for me, others getting enjoyment from it is just an added bonus. I moved and at my last house if the weather was good we could get 600 - 700 kids. Where I am now, I got 13 last night. I will say I did not have my display up last night because we are in the middle of remodeling, but it will be up next year. And if I still only get 10 - 20 I will still add to it each year because it brings me joy.
