Beautiful Florida family faces to show off early Christmas lights – CBS Miami

The Moffa family hired a company to decorate the yard of their Tampa home on November 6, WFLA reported.

A few days later, they received a letter informing them that they now face a fine for violating their HOA agreement.

If they don’t remove the lights, they could be fined $100 a day, up to $1,000, the letter read

Moffa said he has no plans to get rid of the lights.

“It was their only vacancy and I couldn’t get on the roof by myself,” he told the broadcaster, adding that he didn’t know it was against the rules to hang Christmas lights before Thanksgiving.

“With the holidays and the pandemic, I think the kids are wanting something brighter,” Moffa said.

An attorney for the Westchase Community Association said a neighbor had complained about the display.

Jonathan Ellis told WFLA: “This has led to community management to investigate it.

“One of the things they’re discouraging is from people who have holidays lit year-round or things along those lines.”

Ellis said the rules were in place to be followed, but said the board was open to discussing the changes.

However, Moffa said that the association was not received even after they suggested turning off the lights until Thanksgiving.
