WILLIAMSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WILX) — A house known for its decorations is bringing them back for the winter holiday season after being unable to decorate for Halloween.
During the Halloween season, Cheryl Underwood was told by the township that she couldn’t decorate her house at all this holiday season on her dead end street. The township said too many people passing by to watch the elaborate display was a security concern.
The issue sparked weeks of debate among community members at township meetings, but Underwood was given the green light to decorate his home for Christmas.
She said there is a special moment that has motivated her to spread joy in her community every year.
“Our house actually burned down in 2009 and we were away for a year. It was a 100% total loss,” Underwood said. “The community just rallied around us. They brought us food and clothes and it’s just a great way to give back to the community after all they’ve done for us.
She said they had a lot planned for 2022, including a six-foot-tall candy cane forest.
