A homeowner association is threatening a resident over her Christmas decorations, particularly a mannequin dressed as the “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” character. 

“I think it might be someone doesn’t find it as funny as others,” homeowner Rita Anderson told KHQ

Each year, the family decorates with a theme in mind; this year’s is “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” 

The Montrose Master Association said the mannequin, which is holding a can of beer and wearing a blue ushanka hat, has to be moved from a tree that is in the right of way, to Anderson’s front yard, or else she could be fined.

Anderson, however, said Cousin Eddie is not going anywhere, yet.

“He’ll come down December 26th,” she said.

The Montrose Master Association did not comment.
