If you think your neighbor’s elaborate Christmas display is obnoxious, wait until you see what one Ohio man created.
Jasen Dixon, from Sycamore Township, Ohio, made a zombie-themed nativity scene, much to the chagrin of the city.
It’s the second year Dixon has put the display in his front yard, and each year he’s faced opposition.

In 2014, police ordered Dixon to remove the scene from his front yard, saying he lacked a proper permit.
“It was kind of a publicity stunt for my haunted house I run,” Dixon told local news station WKRC. “And it worked.”
This year, Dixon was told the structure “violates neighborhood zoning code,” when he applied for a permit.
"I think it's the theme," Dixon told WKRC. “It just rubs people the wrong way and it puts the spotlight on me. That's why they're coming down so hard on me."
Dixon could face a fine of up to $500 a day if he doesn’t take the scene down, and it sounds like he doesn’t plan on removing it any time soon.
Because nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a baby Jesus with fangs and a mouth dripping with blood.
