Do You Like Inflatables as Holiday Yard Decoration?

My HOA is thinking of banning ANY inflatable from being displayed as yard decoration. What's your take on this?I'm thinking it's a little over the top.  As I was researching the topic I found this blog post about the "Island of Misfit Inflatables."  I almost wet myself from laughing. It was too good not to share - enjoy!

I don't particularly like them, but I think that banning them is a bit much too

I have a Snow Man, and my neighbor has a Penguin, and we have them hanging out together. next to the tree in the middle that's decorated and has those light up presents under it! ... but it's all burried in snow now. lol

Ditto.

I don't love them, but I hate them all day when they are deflated and look like piles of melted things on the lawns.

When they are inflated and lit they "can" be charming, at least some of them.  But they are not inflated and lit more than they are, at least around here.  

HOA can do what they think is in their best interest and I don't have one.  In general, how I personally feel about them should have no bearing on whether others have what they like.

I don't care for them, but certainly don't think they should be banned.

I don't have any but I think its petty and set a dangerous precendent that an HOA can/will ban them simply because they don't like them! Its not like they're dangerous...

Unless they're all hitting the eggnog like THIS snowman was obviously doing at our office Christmas party saturday night! :)

I don't necessarily "like" them, but kids do. When we go driving around looking at lights, the inflatable decorations are always a big hit. I think banning them is a little silly.

 Personally I dislike them, but I wouldn't ban them for others.  HOAs make lots of rules that limit aesthetics, kind of glad I don't belong to one.
