Nasty neighbour note didn’t stop Nova Scotia family from embracing ‘tacky’ Easter decor
Lori Perron was intrigued. A trip to the community post office box not far from her Peachtree Hill home in Halifax, N.S., typically yields a stack of bills, some coupons, junk mail and nothing more.
But on March 4 there was something more. Tucked amid the standard correspondence was a plain white envelope with “Home owner” typed across the front.
“I thought we must have won something,” Ms. Perron says. “It is pretty exciting whenever you get something in the mail that isn’t a bill.”
The excitement, alas, was fleeting, and it vanished altogether after the 45-year-old stay-at-home mom sat down on her front porch to read the envelope’s contents, a letter consisting of three sentences.
“Dear Home owners,” it reads.
“Before Easter comes the community asks that you do not demoralize our subdivision and street with yet again your very tacky decorations. Halloween and Christmas was enough.
“Perhaps you should consider that this area is a step above you.” The letter was signed: “A Concerned Neighbour.” (Devaan Ingraham for the National Post)
