Nothing says Christmas like...

High winds in Brookings, Oregon caused a Christmas display to get a little wilder than its creators probably intended.

ABC News posted a video to Twitter showing two inflatable Snowmen, who seem to be engaged in… some kind of activity.

The title “SNOWMAN VS. SNOWMAN” seems to imply the two creatures were fighting and at least a few people seemed to buy into that conclusion.

But most of  Twitter seemed to feel that, much like the Taco Bell and KFC behind them, the Snowmen were engaged in a more intimate relationship.

Even some ABC new anchors disagreed on what was going on with the snowmen. While one Anchor insisted the two were “fighting”, her co-host asked, “What happened nine months later?”

This isn’t the first Christmas display this year to get a little overly romantic. While the Snowmen’s display of affection was clearly an accident, someone at a shopping center on the Isle of Man arranged some polar bears to look like they were having a very naughty holiday.

Meanwhile, a woman in Louisiana is having a totally different problem with her inflatable Christmas decorations. Author Diana Rowland received an anonymous note from a neighbor, saying her inflatable dragons were “totally inappropriate” and “It makes your neighbors wonder if you are involved in a demonic cult.”

Rowland’s tweet about the note has now been retweeted over 10,000 times and liked nearly 40,000.

Even the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are having Holiday decoration problems. Recently, people decided they could no longer tolerate a Christmas tree over the “N” on the entrance to the Holland Tunnel instead of the “A”.

This led to a Change.Org petition being signed by over 3,000 people, and the Port Authority actually moved the decorations.

The war on Christmas may be fake, but it seems the battle over Christmas decorations is very real.
