To the Grinch who stole our Christmas lights

Theft dampens Christmas spirits

We would like to thank the thief who stole our pole and kaleidoscope light from our Christmas light display in our front yard. We hope you enjoy it because we no longer can. Though you were kind enough to not take any of our lighted trees we now do not trust that you will come back and steal from us again.

We work hard every year putting out our lights for all who drive past our home to enjoy. This we do from the goodness of our hearts. Because of your selfishness we probably will not be putting our display next year. What a shame that will be.

If this letter reaches you, the person who stole our lights, and you decide you would like to return to us what is ours in the first place, be our guest.

Thanks for taking away our trust in our community and dampening our spirit of Christmas.

Sadly and disappointed,

Beth and Carsten Sorensen
