We have neighbors who decorate their house MUCH too early. Thought I'd beat them to the draw this year.
Although most of our neighbors are friendly, helpful and considerate of one another, we have one family who is uncharacteristically quite reserved and keep to themselves to a degree which is almost antisocial. This baffles those of us who are more gregarious. At the bottom of their porch steps they have two lion statues, which I amusingly consider a bit ostentatious for our neighborhood. Three years ago, in the dead of night I tied two huge red ribbons around the lions' necks. The year after that I placed two green Christmas wreaths over the lions' heads and around their necks. Not a word was said to us but to their credit, the middle-of-the-night secret offerings remained for the season. Last year I waited too long so they attached the wreaths before I had a chance to devise something new. But, AHA, this year I visited Goodwill and I found two red Santa Claus hats that I recently attached at 4 am--a very late night is necessary to avoid detection because of their very bright yard light. I have more plans...wait until Mardi Gras!!
