Bah, humbug!

The spirit of Scrooge is alive and well in England, of all places:
At this time of year, Dorothy Glenn's home in South Shields sports hundreds of festive lights and a giant tree with a 4-foot Santa Claus, The Daily Mail reported Monday.

This year, however, Glenn said she was visited by an employee of the local housing association who stood outside her home and "looked like he was counting my decorations."

"He said that the lights were offensive to the community," said Glenn, 41, adding that she is close to her Bengali and Chinese neighbors who enjoy the festive atmosphere of her home at Christmas.
She said she refused to remove the decorations, and eventually got a letter of apology from the housing association, which is fairly surprising, considering the way political correctness has run amok on the other side of the pond over course of the last decade or so.

Seriously, I'm surprised she's not getting charged with some kind of hate crime.
