Best Place to Maybe Kidnap the Baby Jesus (2011)

The Orange Circle

In December, downtown Orange hosts the most P.C. of holiday displays: Smack-dab in Orange's Plaza Square, where Chapman Avenue and Glassell Street meet, is a Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph and their pride and joy—along with a terrifyingly large Santa Claus, a pagan Christmas tree and a menorah. (No Kwanzaa symbol as of yet.) The thought of Savior-snatching struck us last year as we walked the gaily lit streets. Or does He have one of those GPS things in His tummy to deter any unlawful seizure? If not, wouldn't it be hilarious if some group of atheistic anarchists snagged Baby J and held him for ransom? Not that we're suggesting anybody do anything illegal, of course. . . . That would be wrong.
