CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (FOXNEWS) -- A so-called "grinch" is trying to put an end to a 37-year tradition.
It involves the Hunter family's Christmas display. The lights and decorations were started by Bill Hunter -- a former Cambridge, Mass. firefighter. Two years ago, Bill passed and his wife and grown children have continued the tradition, saying it's what he would have wanted.
But a secret "scrooge" left an anonymous letter, calling the display a terrible eye-sore. It goes on to accuse the Hunters of forcing Christianity on the neighborhood.
The family says their Christmas spirit won't be taken from them.
"You could have come and talked to us," said homeowner Kelly Hunter. "We're really nice people. We could have discussed whatever it is. You didn't have to send a nasty letter. I think they're a coward for what they did."
The community has rallied behind the family.
Even a local electrical supply store is brightening their display with free Christmas lights.
