Christmas thief can’t dampen spirits

This letter is for the person or people who stole my only Christmas decoration on my house.

You may have made the outside dark, but you cannot make the inside that way. You see, unlike you, the spirit of Christmas didn’t live in that decoration but lives inside the home and inside of us.

I originally bought that Points Of Light because it had the blue colored light to show honor to the police officers. At Christmas, I would change the color to red and green. My little grandkids loved that light shining in their bedroom at night and creating to them a “rainbow” on the walls. I now have to tell them it’s gone and that someone must have needed it more than us. There is much more to Christmas than having the terrible actions of a few dampen the spirit. You may have taken a light, but will that give you a light inside your heart? Christmas is about the amazing gift given to all a long time ago. That gift cannot be stolen or taken away from us but can remain with all of us for eternity.

Oh and by the way, if you want the remote to the light to change colors or the effects, just let me know. It will be yours for $50. Merry Christmas!
