Someone stole the reindeer mom and dad bought (the first Christmas decor of any kind) in the States when they first moved here. I have no idea what possess people do to these things. All that to say, we know how you feel.

So sorry!!! Me and Fiance used to live in a pretty bad part of town, and we never put anything outside and nobody else did either, and the ones who did had it out for a few days and then it was gone. People are so ridiculous anymore. GET YOUR OWN! lol

I feel bad that that happened to you. It sucks that people can be so selfish sometimes and not care about decent human beings.

Ugh I’m sorry to hear that 🙁  When I was younger, my parent’s house was broken into and they stole boxes of old Christmas decorations from my parent’s childhood, along with other more valuable things.  People are cruel.

I’m so sorry! 

I had a beautiful old wooden rocker stolen from my porch once.  It wasn’t fancy or anything – but I had rocked my kids to sleep in it when they were babies.  Once they got older I moved it to the porch.  The sentimental value WAY exceeded the actual value and I hated that “violated” feeling I had…

That’s terrible!  I’m sorry for you–especially because it was sentimental and can’t be replaced.  You gotta wonder who is going around stealing people’s Christmas decorations!

🙁 That stinks! And you are SO right, there are some for real grinches out there… working at a bookstore at Christmas is pretty much the worst thing ever. I would NEVER yell at someone because we don’t have a book in stock, but people do and we kinda look at them like “well, you’re an @$$” and then offer to call our competitor. We’re on good terms with them, and they’re on the other side of town so it’s not like we compete that much.

I think people swipe things just for the “fun” of it. It’s terrible. Hubby and I were on our honeymoon and we had a little door hanger thing that said “just married” or something and we had it on the hotel door and some people took it. Why? I have no idea- what are they going to do with it, unless the people who took it were part of the group that was there for a wedding? It wasn’t very expensive and probably not worth anything, but it would have been a nice little thing for us to keep. But some dummies, probably drunk (the night before it went missing it was really loud in the hallway), just wanted to take it. Sorry to hear they took your little tree though. People suck.

We used to get grinched every Christmas at my parents house.  People stole our light-up Santa, our light-up Frosty, and they would even unscrew the bulbs out of old Christmas lights.  🙁  It always made me sad that someone would steal our decorations.

Aww! I’m sorry. When I was younger someone was stealing lights off of peoples houses down the street. I think there was a light up santa that my mom had when she was a kid or something, that was stolen too. It’s sad that people have to steal decorations!

I’m so sorry it was stolen!  I haven’t had anything stolen myself but I can’t believe that people think it is okay to take other people’s things.
