If I were the neighbor I'd have taken a picture of it, made it into a Christmas card, and send it to the neighbor wishing them a Happy Holiday.

.....Or maybe buy a plug-in plastic Santa, face his rear towards the neighbors house, and hang mistletoe on its lower back........

There's more to this story that what these doodledicks are reporting.
To penetrate the 'whys' and 'hows', they'd have to get off there butts and actually do some journalism. That's unlikely...

I see nothing wrong with her display, although I would like to know the reason she's so pissed with her neighbors. You either know your getting the finger or you don't-your 4 year old probably knows.

Her reply of people having to contend with things they neither like or are offended by struck home with all of "US".

Everyone in the neighborhood should get together and exercise their free speech by caroling in front of her house repeatedly until she takes the lights down.

She may have the right, but in doing so, she's showing how disrespectful and immature she is. I agree with the man in the video who asked how do you explain that to a little child? What does that teach them? Glad I live around neighbors like that. Even if I did, I'd just ignore it.

Ma'am, no offense, but you need to increase the seafood in your diet...

THAT would be harrassment. And unless they are on the sidewalk or in the road - Tresspass. It also might violate noise nuisance statutes.
Turn the sprinklers on.

I don't understand how and why the ACLU gets involved in trivial things. And they always seem to win.

Do what I did.
At the height of oil prices, I called the highest priced company and had them deliver oil to my neighbors house.

I don't see anything wrong with it either. There always will be things that one doesn't like.
