‘Tis the Season

One more colorful HOA-light blow-up for the holidays, this time from Pennsylvania.   Maybe it’s an Amish thing?  “No electricity?”

All their windows were dark. No one knew he was there. All the Whos were all dreaming sweet dreams without care… when he came to the first little house on the square.

I have occasionally wondered why my own quiet, typically strict and well-managed association lights up like the Las Vegas strip every Christmas season.  We have synchronized lights, LEDs and old school yellow bulbs, inflatables, and, since we’re in Boise, even Blue and Orange -themed lights.  The HOA even encourages the extravagance with an informal competition.  One could certainly read the declaration to ban all of it.

Even as a lawyer and self-appointed grinch, I have to admit that walking our streets this time of year feels festive.  Hopefully that admission won’t be used against any of my clients.

The colored glow lights up entire blocks.   I wonder if our  HOA could save some money by at least turning off the common area lamps.  They probably aren’t needed until January.


This banned Pennsylvania display would be considered downright grinchy in our corner of Boise.
