You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.

A Texas family said their homeowners' association put a damper on their holiday spirit by telling them to take down an inflatable snowman because it's too early for Christmas decorations, NBC News reports.

Claudia Simonis, a resident of the Lakeside at Canyon Springs subdivision in San Antonio, told NBC News in a phone interview on Thursday that her family decorated their front yard on Nov. 1 with a large inflatable snowman, a reindeer and a Santa helicopter.
