The Christmas lights that sum up how we all feel about Isis

A Christmas lights display attracted the attention of authorities - after neighbours mistakenly believed that it was a glowing (quite literally) endorsement for Isis.

But when police in York County, Maine, decided to investigate, they soon realised that the lights were an elaborate protest against the terror group - complete with Father Christmas "relieving" himself on the politically charged display.

It is believed that neighbours couldn't see Santa's crude actions - and were concerned the homeowner may have been an "Isis-sympathiser".

And while the display is somewhat questionable, local sheriff William King Jr has now allowed the festive display to remain over the festive period, after deeming it to be "pro-America".

He told the Portland Press Herald:

No law was broken and we did not tell him to take the lights down or reconfigure anything.

He doesn't like what's going on in the world, so he wanted to make his own little political statement.

He probably should've [used] yellow lights, but he used white lights.

You couldn't really distinguish what Santa was doing.

Merry Christmas, one and all.
