I know this is wrong.
But my neighbor has the word “NOEL” in bright lights on his lawn. Each of the letters is separate from the others, and all four are just stuck in the grass.
I’ve never spoken to him, and only rarely even waved. All I know about him is that he has brown hair and drives a Mercedes.
Last night, I came home late from a Christmas party. It was a time past which most people would be asleep.
Well, long story short, my neighbor’s lights no longer proclaim the Christmas season.
They now, rather cryptically, proclaim “LEON.”
In my mind, it’s a tribute to the 1978 heavyweight boxing champion of the world, Leon Spinks.
Who as far as I know has no connection to the Christmas season.
I’m just hoping that next year my neighbor buys enough letters to spell out “CHRISTMAS.”
Because someone I know really wants to see “MR. ASS ITCH” in lights.
