(Newser) – Ahh, the holidays ... a time for merry-making, gift-giving ... and noose-wielding KKK snowmen? That's what residents of Hayden, Idaho, found in one neighbor's yard. In addition to the noose, which was later removed, the 10-foot-tall snow sculpture was also originally adorned with a KKK hood and is located in a yard that also displays an Aryan Nations flag. Neighbors called police to complain about the homeowner, who has previously angered residents by allegedly passing out bullets on Halloween, KXLY reports.
