Neighbors to Maria Shriver

TAKE DOWN YOUR XMAS LIGHTS ALREADY!!!

0327_maria_shriver_house_christmas_lights_launchOn the 94th day of Christmas ... MARIA SHRIVER STILL HASN'T TAKEN DOWN HER CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ... and her Brentwood neighbors are starting to go all Ebenezer Scrooge ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in Maria's super fancy Brentwood community tell TMZ, the neighbors have been clucking about Maria's ultra-bright Xmas light display for weeks now ... because Christmas is long over, and the lights on the trees around her property have become an eyesore.

In fact, TMZ shot video (below) on Maria's street Tuesday night ... and her house was the ONLY ONE still sportin' the Clark Griswold treatment.

We're told the neighbors haven't approached Maria directly yet because they like her and don't want to hurt her feelings ... but in typical passive aggressive neighborly fashion, they're hoping word will make its way back to her.

If not ... she can just keep the decorations up until December -- after all, it's only another 271 days until Santa comes back to town.

Not the worst neighborly problem, but if she still lights them that's silly. Some people leave them up, unlit, to avoid the restringing fiasco.

Hey Maria good for you! Mine are on right now......I leave them on as long as I want. Still America right? Tell those elitist Brentwood neighbors to mind their own pagan business. They cheer me up and if you don't like it, sit and spin.

Who cares, it's not like she has a twenty foot inflatable santa out there. She likes them, it's her house.

So they don't have the courage to ask her to take them down, but they have the courage to call TMZ? Nice.

They're clear lights. Maybe they're still up simply because they're pretty.

i think this is about safety. imagine if something happens at night, and someone with only a 2.3 Megapixel camera is there as a witness. you won't be able to see a thing. brentwood is not a safe place. as we all know all too well... creepiest neighorhood i've been to.

Wow ...    

There are many people whom use white lights year round for decoration. It may also be used to brighten the area for security reasons, possibly even cameras. Let the woman be. If she likes it, she likes it. She pays her bills, not the neighbors.

She's starting with the birth of Christ and leaving them up until his resurrection.
