~Sunday* (errr...not the usual Sunday Best*)

Where Is Baby Jesus ?!!!
... 'Baby Jesus theft' is actually the theft of figurines of the infant Jesus from outdoor public and private nativity displays during this Christmas Season. Some attribute such occurrences to juvenile pranksters while others wonder if the thefts have anti-Christian undertones. There were also reports that the figurines had even been defaced with profanity or satanic symbols. The prevalence of such thefts or vandalism has caused the owners of outdoor manger/nativity scenes to protect their property with GPS devices & surveillance camera. ~grrrrr...so horrible isn't it?!

Oddly, I have lost the Baby Jesus from my creche this year. We had it last year. Do you think someone stole it? No. Unless it was a roof rat. But still....

Simply Mel said...

Gosh, that's horrible.

Treacle (Stockings Addict) said...

Well that's just a rotten thing to do. No two ways about it. :-(

WendyB said...

It's kids for sure. Funny, I was just thinking of starting a consulting service for disciplining other people's children. Like that Supernanny show, but without the commitment. I'll just come in and yell at them briefly.

S and O said...

Sher said...

All it takes is a surveillance camera. Then caught red handed....

Auburn Not Red said...

That is really sad. All religion aside...it's private property and it's a crime. Why do people have to be such scrooges?!

Juanita said...

Is nothing sacred?

Jeannette Mariae said...

I simply can´t belive it ;-(

Dear Lenore. Thank you for all your coments on my blog this year. It brings me so much joy hearing from you.

Happy christmas, dear friend.

Love JM ;-)

Susan said...

Curiously, this has the effect of drawing attention to the problem of crime - and to the simple beauty and purity of nativity scenes, many of which are wonderful works of art and sculpture...

Sophia said...

I TOTALLY love your new header! It's lovely.

And yes, how crazy is that? What is the purpose of stealing him. Good grief. I hope they return him soon.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

Bathwater said...

It is his own fault really, by thirteen he was basically self sufficient. Who doesn't want to raise a kid like that.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Wendy,Marcos & Bathwater...
you are too funny guys!

~Peace*

Down and Out Chic said...

so ridiculously horrible especially the profanity and/or satanic symbols. yikes.

The Seeker said...

That is crazy!!!
But on another serious note I think Jesus is REALLY missing on Christmas, all that matters is the tree decorations and other ornaments, Santa giving presents... where is Jesus, if you know what I mean...

Much love to you my dear, many blessings.

xoxoxoxo

Miss K. You said...

Oh that really is horrible :( I'm sure those people would face some kind of karma.

But Jesus is so very alive and present.. one place is in our hearts. Have a good Sunday!

Jaime said...

That's sad!

Cute new header for the holidays!

Clorivak said...

taking christ out of christmas is what my ma would say.
hope your weekend was awesome!!

Shaddy said...

That kind of behavior just shows how badly the world needed and still needs to celebrate the birth of Jesus who came to save us from our sins, even the sins of those who steal at Christmas.

Andie said...

oh my gosh... thats terrible!

I just can't imagine harming anything that belongs to someone else. And if my children ever did, Well it would just break my heart.
Hope your Sunday was/is beautiful. We just returned from a long and lovely day in Manhattan and I am headed to read and rest :)
Hugs

xphoebelinax said...

that is so disgusting disrespectful! i hate hearing stuff like this, makes me question what the juvenile of our world and what they're going to be doing in the future!

Noémie K said...

Funny post*°*°*°
Happy Holidays dear*°*°**

The Cottage Cheese said...

No matter what one's beliefs, this is deplorable! However, I'm a bit ashamed of myself that I do kind of giggle at the image of a GPS system being taped to poor baby Jesus. What's wrong with the world today?

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thank you everyone...
yup, Let's remember Christ in Christmas~
xo*

Sam said...

Some people...really bad that sort of behaviour. :(

Hanako66 said...

just awful, regardless of your beliefs!

OceanDreams said...

That is so horrible, I thought that only happens in movies. Guess in real life too. Grrr!

Gabbi said...

That is horrible...

Diana said...

How sad :(

kys said...

Why would anyone do such a thing?

Phoenix said...

Rest assured that the people who do that sort of pathetic stuff make themselves more miserable than anyone else could ever make them. You get what you give.
