There Are Only 12 Days of Christmas


Somebody snitched on Maryland's North Bethesda Methodist Church. The church opened up a Christmas tree lot on its grounds on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, just as it has for the past six years. Three days later, a Montgomery County inspector showed up to tell them it's against county ordinances to sell Christmas trees before Dec. 5. Oh, and their signs were larger than the county allows, so he shut them down.
