The City of Phoenix is already being a Grinch this Christmas.
Lee and Patricia Sepanek's house in Arcadia has been a Phoenix icon for over 30 years. Each year they decorate just about every square inch of their property in Christmas lights. The display draws thousands every year. But, this year the normally busy neighborhood will be dark and quiet thanks to the City of Phoenix and a neighbor who complained about the traffic.
Their holiday spirit costs The Sepanek's about 10,000 dollars in electricity alone. To offset some of the costs they sell hot cocoa and cookies. Now, the city says they can't sell cocoa and cookies without a proper license. For now, the family says they will not put up their holiday display.
They have set up a go fund me page to help hire an attorney to fight the city and to be able to hopefully be able to set up the display next year. You can help by clicking here.
