Christmas Is A Time For Joy, And Increased Caution

Christmas is one of the most joyous times of the year. Families come together to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the start of a new year and, most importantly, each other.

However, not everyone has these same positive sentiments. Home invasions and robberies have become increasingly more common around the holidays.

Last week the Fulton Hill neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia increased police patrols after two violent break-ins occurred within a mile of each other.

A few days earlier, thieves broke into a Superior Township, Michigan home and stole a slew of valuable personal items, including Christmas presents.

Families must be vigilant in warding off these Christmas grinches. Keep all doors locked, stow gifts out of sight of windows, and be mindful of strangers in the neighborhood.

  1. Sad but true. And it is true of much of life. A quote that comes to mind is "Eternal vigilance it the price of liberty."

    I trust you had a glorious Christmas and will enjoy of blessed New Year.

    Grace and peace.
