Doubt this would happen in Buffalo, but in San Antonio, Texas it's a different story..

NBC News reports,

A family in San Antonio, Texas, was told by their neighborhood homeowners association to pump the brakes on the holiday cheer after they put up a display in their yard on Nov. 1.  Diamond Association Management & Consulting sent Claudia and Nick Simonis a letter on Nov. 4 saying that it was too soon to put up their decorations... They were told to "please remove the snowman until closer to the holiday season," the family said.

How did the family react?

"I just found it crazy,'' Claudia Simons told WOAI. "Especially that they didn’t give us a time. Like, when is the right time to put it?"

Simons added,

 she is eight months pregnant, so she likely couldn't put up the display if the couple waited until closer to Christmas.

In the end the letter from the homeowners association did not say which date is correct to put up decorations.  So, what to do?
