(THE SMOKING GUN) — Police were called last night to a South Carolina residence to break up a fight between relatives who pushed and yelled at each other over the decorating of the family’s Christmas tree.

According to a sheriff’s report, the fight began around 10:30 PM and involved three women who live together at the Spartanburg home. The dispute between the women–aged, 76, 61, and 24–was triggered “due to the Christmas tree being decorated by 2 of the females while the other female was at work.”

A male relative, 41, subsequently “arrived at the residence to try and calm the three females down but was unsuccessful.” When questioned by a sheriff’s deputy, all four family members “admitted to pushing each other and getting in their faces.”
