WELLINGTON, FL —  It’s the season for Christmas trees, garland, lights and ornaments, but one holiday decoration is raising some eyebrows in Florida.

According to WPTV, a mother of three spotted the holiday sign at Dillard’s while shopping with her kids.

The sign reads:

“Dear Santa, this year please give me a big fat bank account and a slim body. Please don’t mix those two up like you did last year. Thanks.”

The mother says she spotted it the girls’ section of the department store. She posted it on Facebook and it is making the rounds on social media.

Employees from Dillard’s say the sign was never meant to be placed in the girls’ section.  Dillard’s has since directed all stores to completely remove the sign from the sales floor.

    “Employees from Dillard’s say the sign was never meant to be placed in the girls’ section.”

    So where exactly did they mean it to be that they felt it would appropriate?

    People Have way to much time on their hands! It’s a joke. It doesn’t say those are the most important things in life like the one lady said. I don’t ask for the most important things in life for Christmas. Neither do my kids.. Come on people.. Really we are getting all bent out of shape over this.. Wow!!
