Ho-ho-horrible Christmas Eve– Two nativity scenes desecrated with pro-Hitler symbols

Two Nativity scenes were desecrated the night before Christmas Eve, officials told CBSLA. The nativity scenes were both on the same street in Huntington Beach, California.

Richard Candlish, owner of one of the vandalized nativity scenes, told CBSLA that the Christmas decorations that usually brought him joy over the holidays now bring him grief. The culprit scribbled “HAIL Hitler” on the baby Jesus along with a Hitler-esque mustache.

“They misspelled HEIL,” Candlish said to CBSLA. “It really goes to the ignorance of the people who did it”.

And the vandal didnt’ stop at the Messiah. The same misspelled phrase was smeared on one of the three magi too. In case anyone was confused about the details of the Christmas story, Adolph Hitler was not in fact present at the birth of Christ.
The graffiti artist also decided the St. Bonaventure Church’s nativity scene needed more “decorations” and scribbled similar “artwork”, but this time adding swastikas. The church has removed the ruined portions of the nativity scene, so tonight’s church goers will not have to witness this sacrilegious act.
The police on the scene are considering this a hate crime.
“It’s sad to think that somebody would do it because they hate St. Bonaventure.Or they didn’t like Catholics. ” Church parishioner Dani Degrood told CBSLA. “I mean it’s just sad. Then you have to wonder why else would they do it.”

Degrood continued,”I thought it was horrible.We put out a really nice display for the community. And our parish community. And it’s really sad for someone to take it upon themselves to wreck it for everyone.”

Candlish said that many parents used to bring their children to see his Christmas display, but now “children come by and their parents had to take them away.”

No suspects have been arrested yet.
