Love and Hate: The Holiday Spirit is Upon Us
Nothing screams holidays like kilowatt sucking yard decorations which seem to always upset at least one neighborhood Grinch. A Christmas light display proved to a be turn-on in Sacramento, California where a lighted private-owned display near a shopping mall showed a pair of deer making the beast with two backs. Because the display is on private property it cannot be moved and it is unclear if the stag party was staged on purpose, or if anonymous pranksters decided to show off their Christmas party behavior as a Merry Christmas to all.
Hayden, Idaho resident Mark Eliseuson managed to annoy the locals without blaring carols or illuminating his house with a neon Santa, LED Xmas trees and glowing life-sized manger. While he was more green than many who practice the art of Xmas decorations, he was also way more mean as the photo below from local station KXLY shows.
Eliseuson, who passed out bullet casing to trick or treaters at Halloween claiming he’d run out of candy (hullo–that’s what spare change is for!) built a ten foot tall snow man with a peaked head resembling a hood, holding a noose. Neighbors complained and police paid a visit, pointing out they could charge him with
with creating a public nuisance. Idaho law defines such a nuisance as anything “offensive to the senses” or that interferes with the comfort of an entire neighborhood.
