Open Letter to Genesee County: Ease Off the Holiday Inflatables
It's time to issue a warning to Genesee County for the holiday season.
Stop putting inflatables in your yard for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!
NOTHING says "I'm lazy" or "that'll do" quite like creating a "grand opening sale" or "under new management" vibe for your holiday yard display.
A giant inflatable pumpkin, Santa in an outhouse (no joke, video below) and giant turkeys only look good to a 4 year-old.
When inflatables are switched off they're DEflated -- It looks like dirty laundry all over the yard. You wouldn't leave a stove or couch on your front porch and call it decoration would you?

Now, think about the most beautiful lights you've seen at Christmastime around Flint & Genesee County.
Have you ever seen a yard-full of inflatables and think "Mother of All That's Holy, these inflatables are better than anything I've ever seen in Frankenmuth." Nope.

What if Crossroads Village only did inflatables for their holiday display? People would lose their minds after paying admission.
This year, show the kids and kids at heart, in your neighborhood "the way" to making the holidays look warm and cozy. Grab strings of lights (soft-white) and spread the holiday cheer!
Unless, you and yours truly prefer that "grand opening" or "under new management" feel for the holidays. Then, more power to you.
