Holiday vandalism already starting

One of Brambleton's holiday displays was stolen from the waterfall area near the Visitors Center - wires neatly cut, ice skating couple gone.

What is wrong with people?

Last year, as some of you know, there was a rash of vandalism throughout the neighborhood. Lights cut, houses and cars egged, and most devastating to me - our Frosty the Snowman inflatable was slashed TWICE. After the first day, I stitched him up, but the same bunch of kids came back in broad daylight the next day to cut him again. Fortunately some of them were caught later in the evening while egging a house.

It is a shame that Brambletonians have to worry about having their holiday decorations stolen or destroyed. Are kids really that bored (and unsupervised)? How could they ever think this is acceptable behavior?

They'd better not visit me again this year. Baby Jesus will be watching from the outdoor Nativity. Our security camera will be watching too.

This is why our giant Christmas snow globe will be located in a tacky, but safe location...our deck.
