What A Bah-Humbug Christmas... Read On!

Today, we awoke to find the front lights on our christmas display vandalized and stolen.


How depressing.  What state of mind do you have to be in to think that taking and destroying someone else's property is an activity worthy of being called fun.  What sort of parents brought up these children (and I know it is kids who do this crap).  We have only lived here for a little less than 2 years and I have to say that I felt safer in my other home than I do in this one. 


The kids around here tend to come from afluent families and from what I have seen, they don't seem to garner much worth in other people or even hint at being respectful of other people's propery (O.P.P.)!



Needless to say, I have taken down the rest of my display on the front yard and decided that I will not allow these hoodlums and miscreants to further denegrate my holiday.  I have moved my holiday display to the back yard and next year, all my lights will be placed in the back yard for a beautiful holiday display there.  I will further more not subject the neighborhood to my halloween setup any longer either.  Christmas and the holiday lights is very important to me, but the Halloween display is what I look forward to all year round.  I will not chance my Halloween display being trampled.


It really turns out to be the communities loss as we shut ourselves into our home and introvert the outward displays into our backyard instead.


Happy Holidays.
