LETTER: Who stole Santa?

I hope you had a great holiday. I did until the morning of Jan. 1 when I looked out on the lawn at where I had put my Santa.

Reader Stephanie Myers is disappointed that someone absconded with her wooden Santa decoration (seen at bottom).

I hope you had a great holiday. I did until the morning of Jan. 1 when I looked out on the lawn at where I had put my Santa, sleigh, and reindeer and there was no longer a Santa in the sleigh. All that was left was his leg.

I was gifted this plywood decoration by a friend who made it many years before and was just sort of tired of it.

I love decorating for Christmas and it has had a couple of fun years over in Grohman Creek, at the end of my Sex Drive laneway, and then on the top of a school bus that my neighbours (Garret Buelher and Kurt Sorge) use for a bike jump.

You can see what’s left at the corner of Cedar and Latimer. I would like to get the word out about this in the hopes that someone will feel guilty enough to bring it back. I love this thing and want it all back together.

Stephanie Myers, Nelson
