    Angry I am just appalled and disgusted

    I saw this story about a couple having to pay fines because they have multicolored lights. My god what is a matter with some people? I am just so enraged I canít even think clearly.

    That's disgraceful! Anybody should be allowed to decorate their house for Christmas however they like!

    I happened to like multicolored lights because it makes me feel like Christmas. Itís the only time of year of year that you can get away with it.

    I see white lights all year long and in fact I use them around my back patio for night time barbeque parties, but for Christmas I think of colored lights. For me multicolored is magical and I have to say that some of the so called white lights look more like a depressing yellow to me.

    I live in a valley with fairly new street lights that are a sickening yellow and every time I drive over the mountain pass and look down at the valley at night with those yellow lights, it just makes me feel ill. My only relief is at Christmas time when everyone has the colored lights out to make it easier to look at.

    There is another valley community nearby with much older street lights that are actually white and I just love driving into that valley even when its not Christmas.

    Something tells me that Ladd Thompson's stocking will be filled with coal this year.

    I sure hope public opinion can change this stupid rule. They speak about the property values dropping. I mean come on is that not the dumbest thing you ever heard. I wonder what would happen if enough people protested this on facebook or twitter
    I looked at a place with a homeowners association when I was buying my current home and I’m so glad I didn’t buy it.

    Christmas is the day of celebration. This is nothing but a reason of decorating, lightening our home and garden and our entire surrounding environment. The people who refuse for this they are the fool.

    If u have read "The Lost Symbol" written by Dan Brown, many many things in this book are true. And many many people are contacting the God face to face. Dan Brown said in the book: " the soul(s) exist. When people die, soul would be separated from body". The priest in the book already knew The God Exist before he died

    Are these fines actually enforcable? I'm sure there would be grounds for a legal challenge under what shreds of the constitution are left after Bush and Obama have finished their work with the correction fluid. Even in Orwellian Britain we don't have this sort of thing going on.

    Well I’m not an attorney, but I believe that when you buy a place in one of these communities you have to sign an agreement stating you will abide by the rules or be fined or kicked out whether you own the place or not. I hear stories about homeowners associations all the time from having a flag to what kind of car you drive. I personally would never move in to one of these places and lose part of my freedoms.
    I guess it works to some peoples advantage, but you if are just the slightest bit indifferent then it could end up as a nightmare.

    Maybe the wider christmas community could get a campaign going in support of the couple. We are many, the nitpickers are few...
