Not only is there a Holiday Scrooge at work on our very own front steps, stealing our Santa Yoda and Santa Darth Vader from our neighbourhood children, but apparently he has hightailed it over to Aldergrove, where a close-knit collection of houses were hit hard on December 3rd. These Saintly Santas were stripped of a volume of inflatables, cut-outs, lights and vintage decorations.
