ELYRIA, Ohio - An 84-year-old Elyria woman received a threatening letter demanding that she take down her Christmas lights.
Louise Henry got the letter on Tuesday at her house on 15th Street.
“I don’t know why they don’t like Christmas,” Henry said.
Henry said her neighbor brought in her mail for her and she was expecting simply bills. But her neighbor was in shock.
“She said, ‘Oh my God.’ And I said ‘What’s wrong with you?” Henry told NewsChannel5.
Elyria police released the contents of the letter, which said:
“Please take your (expletive) Christmas lights down. Christmas and New Years have already passed and is no where near. I’m tired of seein’ that (expletive). Don’t make me tell you again. Thanks (derogatory term).”
Henry said she plans to turn on her lights each night as she has done for months. She usually turns them down at about 7 p.m.
She said she kept the lights up because her daughter had a great Christmas and didn’t want to take them down.
Police have not named suspect, but said they are still investigation.
