Grinch came early to Brookswood this year
Feeling the Christmas spirit early, Brett Hill and his family decided to put up their Christmas decorations and lights up on Sunday.
They even watched Deck the Halls before going to bed.
“We put them up early because we just felt like it this year,” said Hill. But come Monday morning, the Brookswood family wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit.
Overnight, some Grinches made off with their eight-foot air blown snowman, 42- inch deer and 42- inch Santa Claus.
They took all the ropes, tent pegs and extension cords, too.
“They hadn’t even been up a day,” said Hill on Monday morning.
The Hills live on a cul-de-sac in the 21100 block of 43A Avenue.
He wants to let other Christmas-spirited Langley residents, especially Brookswood neighbours, to think twice about putting out decorations early.
He told police he did see two suspicious characters earlier that day when he was putting his items out. The family won’t let the Grinches steal Christmas however, Hill said.
