The Holiday Spirit

Recently eaten: vegetable tempura
Recent annoyance: itchy pants

What says the holiday spirit more than holiday decorations on your lawn? I'd say having to fend off a knife-wielding neighbor with said lawn ornaments during the holidays.

A man using a candy cane lawn ornament fended off a knife-wielding neighbor who had been attacking holiday guests at a Sacramento home. Police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong said the man used the two-foot-tall plastic ornament to subdue the attacker until officers arrived.

He said the 49-year-old suspect became intoxicated, went over to a neighbor's home on Thanksgiving and began waving a kitchen knife at people gathered on the lawn.
