UNION BEACH, N.J. (1010 WINS) – Residents along Lorillard Avenue in Union Beach are in the holiday spirit, but not enough to deal with a 6-foot mechanical singing Santa that one resident put on display.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ Kathleen Maloney reports

Jill Patella said she put up the singing Santa because it was the last gift she got from her husband who died three years ago.

“This year was the time,” she said. “He would have wanted me to live life again.”

Meanwhile, the neighbors are growing angrier by the hour.

“It’s literally 12 to 13 hours a day,” Mark Dittman said. “There’s no consideration for the neighbors. We’re very into the Christmas spirit, but this is ridiculous.”
