Maria Shriver’s Brentwood neighbors are annoyed that she has yet to take down her outdoor Christmas light display, TMZ reports. This information seems at once comically dull and intensely personal, and we’re not sure what to do with it. Praise Shriver, who is getting back into journalism post-divorce, for leaning instead of cleaning? Condemn her for wasting a ton of energy? Admire her nonconformist approach to lawn decor? Worry? It’s easy to sympathize with the neighbors. TMZ says they really like Shriver and don’t want to hurt her feelings by asking if she wouldn’t mind paying someone to take down the Christmas lights. Or at least unplug them. Valentine’s Day really is the absolute limit.
