Not all holiday decorations have to be the same. Some people might like lights around trees, nativity scenes, or reindeer frolicking with snowmen. Others might prefer a fleet of 10-foot-tall inflatable dragons. Author Diana Rowland is a fan of the latter, but her neighbors don't take too kindly to her unique yuletide tastes.


On December 14, Rowland tweeted a picture of a rude note her neighbors sent regarding her collection of holiday dragons:


Here are the dragons that have caused so much trouble...

...and here's the note in which the neighbors wonder if Rowland is "involved in a demonic cult."

The note reads in shoutycaps:

------- NEIGHBOR, YOUR DRAGON DISPLAY IS ONLY MARGINALLY ACCEPTABLE AT HALLOWEEN. IT IS TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE AT CHRISTMAS. IT MAKES YOUR NEIGHBORS WONDER IF YOU ARE INVOLVE DIN A DEMONIC CULT. PLEASE CONSIDER REMOVING THE DRAGONS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND HELP YOU TO KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS.

Rowland had the perfect response!



Twitter users were not big fans of Rowland's neighbors.





Though she'd done nothing wrong, Rowland decided to take the high road and give her dragons a little more holiday spirit!

On top of that, she added a couple more dragons to the display, rounding out her fire-breathing brood at five.


Some Twitter users wanted to start a GoFundMe campaign for Rowland so she could buy even more dragons:




For Rowland, it's not about the money. It's about the dragons.


Fans online seemed to love the dragons just as much as they hated Rowland's neighbors.







Keep reppin' those dragons, Diana! They may just be the true reason for the season.


Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
