HOAs And The Grinch That Stole Christmas

I’m a big fan of Christmas, a big fan. My family finished decorating the house last night and as I stood back admiring our handiwork with my moose mug in hand, my wife asked if the HOA was going to allow my Griswold esque display… Being all-man my response was something along the lines of: “I don’t care what they allow… I’m leaving it up”. I understand the purpose of HOA’s, more than most being in the real estate industry… they do great things to keep property values up, but I was disappointed when I opened the bylaws and found that the ENTIRETY of our Christmas decorations were against the “rules”!You’re a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
You have termites in your smile,
You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr Grinch.
Given the choice between the two of you,
I’d take the seasick crocodile.Tonight, resigned to my fate, I remove the glistening display meant to bring cheer to all that pass.
