The unusual Christmas decoration of a Louisiana woman has become viral after sparking a flame with her neighbor, fearing she might be involved in a "demonic cult."
Diana Rowland, a former police officer who became a fantasy writer, set up inflatable dragons in her backyard to celebrate Christmas and Halloween for at least four years.
She told Fox News during a telephone interview on Tuesday that her husband had her the first to get her on her birthday a few years ago, and they hung up on Halloween.
"As a fantasy writer, they are with my ally," she said, adding that they had torn it down after the holiday.
This year, they decided to rebuild it after Thanksgiving and built more Christmas decorations.
"People loved it … my immediate neighbors love them," Rowland said. "They come and take their picture … We are the & # 39; dragon house & # 39 ;."
Some love it so much that even one of their older neighbors told her to even put a spotlight on so people can see it. They told Fox News that they would not put any headlights on, as this would be a bit.
Unfortunately, one of her neighbors this year had had enough with her fantastic display and sent Rowland in an anonymous letter to consider canceling her "inappropriate" ad.
"Your dragon depiction is only partially acceptable on Halloween. It's totally inappropriate at Christmas, "the letter said. "Your neighbors are wondering if you are involved in a demonic cult. Please consider removing the dragons. May God bless you and help you to know the true meaning of Christmas. "
Rowland posted a photo of her dragons and the anonymous on Twitter last week, and it had become viral with over 9,400 retweets and over 36,000 likes.
"I had to read it twice and really," she said. "I ran to my daughter, who is 14 years old, and said to her," Look, we've got a posthaste!
She added, "The first line of the letter really set the tone for it.  Rowland added two more dragons to this year's display, some with halos on their heads.
"I do not want to call it a war, but I can say I won this round," she said.
Rowland said she was "a bit famous" from her books, but the last few days were famous on another level.
"It was interesting," she said. "My family supported me, my daughter stops That's funny. "
Since the post office became viral, Rowland has been flooded with fundraisers to help her buy more dragons, instead she's asking people to donate to charity instead.
" Me can buy my own kites, "she said." (Also), there is a line between reunion with a jerky neighbor and a jerky neighbor. "
At least one person has picked her up at her request and sent a penguin salvation donated in honor of Rowland's Dragon Army.
"It's about spreading the joy – finding joy with the dragons," Rowland said.
