Singing Santa hits a sour note

A singing Santa Claus is hitting sour notes for some residents in the little town of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The animatronic Santa decoration in Chris Brumfield's yard is on somebody's naughty list, and they want him silenced.

"I'm flabbergasted.  I can't put my noodle around it," Brumfield said.

Brumfield has been putting the crooning Claus out on his Bethelehem lawn for the past several years.

This year, however, someone called the police complaining about the noise, and saying they want the jolly old elf turned off.

"Maybe they don't have no joy in their life, they're miserable and they want to make everyone else miserable," Brumfield said..

He admits when he first got the decoration he kept the volume up, but this year he says he's keeping it at a reasonable level.

Shirley Weaver lives a few houses down and thinks the singing Santa is the greatest thing on the block.

"I think with the economy with the way it is he should stay up because it we can all use some happiness and enjoyment," she said.

Because St. Nick isn't technically breaking any laws he will stay right where he is, although he'll "ho, ho, ho"  and sing his carols at a lower volume, and will have a curfew of about 8 o'clock.
