Neighbors file lawsuit against homeowner for holiday lights and music

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Too much holiday cheer?

A West Palm Beach couple is so fed up with their neighbors' Christmas lights and music, they've taken them to court.

On Alhambra Place, there are several homes shining brightly for the holidays, but there's one in particular that stands out amongst the rest.

Miriam Galan's home has been the brightest for more than a decade.

"Everything is Christmas."

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

"I love him," says Galan.

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 have filed complaints with the West Palm Beach Police Department.

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

Just last week Miriam's neighbors filed suit against her.

"Now it comes to this, I'm nervous," says Galan.

WPTV reached out to the couple, but they did not want to comment.

We spoke with other neighbors on the block and majority had no issues.

Miriam's attorney plans to file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
