Baby Jesus returns to nativity scene

Baby Jesus returns to nativity scene

Baby Jesus, omitted from the nativity display on the Carlinville square due to theft concerns, was placed in the scene just in time for this year’s Christmas holiday. The baby Jesus portion of the display has a history of being stolen, then returned on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Most notably, it was stolen in December 2015, within 24 hours of two speed bumps being stolen from Loveless Park.
