What’s not to love about Christmas right?  Admit it, whatever your religious persuasion is it never hurts to get a little extra blast of colour during the long winter nights from strings of lights on trees or festive wreaths on doors.

That is of course unless you live in Parker County, Texas where one neighbourhood is dealing with a Grinch in mom jeans and split ends, hell-bent on ruining everyone’s Christmas by stealing decorations under the blanket of night.

Too bad Grinchy-Sue didn’t check for security cameras though.

NBC 5 has the story here:

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office says a Christmas Grinch is stealing decorations in Aledo.

In one case, surveillance video caught the thief in action. (Photo above.)

“I just thought it was teenage boys playing around,” said Ashley Starnes.

Someone stole the wreath from her front door and a string of lights from her front yard at about 3 a.m. on Dec. 7.

But then her husband reviewed their surveillance video and couldn’t believe his eyes.

The “Grinch” was a grown woman. She is seen on the video approaching the front door, ripping off the wreath and walking away.

But before she left in a red, four-door pickup, she snatched a row of Christmas lights from the family’s driveway.

Jon Starnes summed up his reaction as “shock, absolute shock.”

“[I] just couldn’t believe it — that a grown individual would do something like that,” he said. “It’s so petty.”

Then, surveillance video appeared to show the same woman returning one week later at about 4 a.m. and stealing another row of lights.

“I was mad at first, but Merry Christmas,” Ashley Starnes said. “I guess she needs it more than I do.”

Wrong, what this woman needs more than other people’s Christmas decorations is a few pairs of flattering hand me down jeans and a bottle of Pert Plus or Alberto VO5 to comb through her struggling hairstyle.

What do you think would be the appropriate charge for this woman if caught?  Is this just simple theft, or is it something more because she’s targeting the Christmas spirit?  Leave a comment below.

And here’s another stand up citizen in another part of the US doing the exact same thing.
