Ah yes, American holiday spirit: 

Jensen was ordered to take the [peace-sign shaped] wreath down when some residents in her 200-home subdivision saw it as a protest of the Iraq war. Bob Kearns, president of the board, also said some saw it as a symbol of Satan. (From: Truce declared in peace wreath battle – CNN.com)

In the season of Peace on Earth and Good Will Towards Men, we have whole neighborhoods declaring hanging a peace sign on your house is not just unpatriotic and divisive, but also downright Satanic.

No comment from the neighborhood association board, two of whom changed their phone numbers to unlisted ones on Monday.

Yes, peace on earth; what a radical notion.
