Bah Humbug!

Someone is on Santa’s naughty list. Early this morning at 1:02.47 am to be exact, 2 large wreaths were taken from our front gate on Atlantic Avenue. I sincerely hope they are enjoying the wreaths. You are on camera and it has been reported to the Police. As a non-profit, we are just trying to spread some holiday cheer to the citizens and visitors of Virginia Beach. For all, please stop by and enjoy the decorations both inside and outside, but please leave them for others to enjoy.

Sincerely,
The de Witt Elf

Please share.

Sadly, in this day and age if it isn't bolted down it will probably get stolen.😔

I’m not home yet, but maybe I can donate another?

NOOOOO 😡
