So, you've chosen to ignore your crotchety old Board of Directors and their silly rules restricting holiday decorations.  YOU are in the Christmas spirit and you have lavishly decorated your house with brilliant stands of lights, you’ve adorned the trees and shrubs with sparling tinsel, and your final touch, the 10-foot inflatable nativity scene. Yes, they have sent you several warning letters to remove the prohibited items. But hey, what are they going to do, TAKE IT DOWN??!!

Meanwhile, you in your kerchief and mom in her cap have both settled down for a longer winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arises such a clatter, that you spring from your bed to see what is the matter! And, what to your wondering eyes should appear NOPE NOT A SLEIGH AND 8 TINY REINDEER, IT'S THE CREW THAT HAS BEEN HIRED BY YOUR BOARD TO REMOVE YOUR DECORATIONS!!!!!!

OH NO! This can't be. It's YOUR home and YOUR property. The board can't give someone permission to remove YOUR decorations!  But, depending on your bylaws they very well may have the right to do just that. 

So as the crew drives out of sight, wish THEM a Merry Christmas and a very good night!

YOU certainly won't be having one!
