WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Can a home have too much holiday cheer?

A Florida couple got so fed up with their neighbors’ Christmas lights and music, they’re taking them to court.

There are several homes on the street shining brightly for the holidays, but there’s one in particular that stands out. Miriam Galan’s home has been the brightest for more than a decade.

“Everything is Christmas,” Galan said of her display.

Last year, she added a dancing, singing Santa Claus.

“I love him,” Galan said.

One of her neighbors across the street has had enough in year two of the singing decoration. They claim Miriam leaves jolly old St. Nick and her lights on throughout the night.

Sick and tired of the noise, they filed complaints with the West Palm Beach Police Department last week.

The couple said the noise has gotten so bad, they’ve had to spend time away from home.

“Now it comes to this. I’m nervous,” Galan said of the lawsuit.

The couple who filed the lawsuit declined to comment.

Other neighbors on the block said they had no issues with Galan’s display. Galan’s attorney plans to file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
