Haddonfield Family Receive ‘Violation’ For ‘Lazy’ Christmas Decorations
An anonymous Christmas Eve note delivered to the home of a Haddonfield (Camden County) family has left them scratching their heads as they felt like the Grinch visited their home this Christmas Eve.
Angela Beatty says her family received a “violation” for their “lazy Christmas decorations.” The violation was received in the form of a letter from the “S&V panel,” which said the Haddonfield family committed violations against their panel.
Those violations committed by the Beatty family included a “lack of a neat, organized and/or classy Christmas lighting," according to the letter.
The letter, which called the Beattys’ decorations lazy, allegedly included a “complimentary” box of 100 white string lights to “jump-start” the family’s 2020 planning.
The recipient of the note, Angela Beatty, tells the Courier-Post that her family has had a tough year and she felt “too depressed to decorate." The family recently lost a beloved pet, nursed an ill relative back to health, and dealt with had a car accident, NJ.com reported.
Angela tells the Courier-Post that her family put blue lights on a bush outdoors to honor her father-in-law’s service in the New York City Police Department.
Angela tells NJ.com that other local residents posted in local Facebook groups that they had received letters from the "S&V panel" praising their decorations in 2018.
NJ.com spoke extensively with Beatty who commented on how the letter hurt her family. She has filed a police report with Haddonfield police, NJ.com noted on Thursday.
