The nativity scene installed in front of the Notre-Dame church of Dijon was vandalized with litter and garbage bags three times between December 20th and 25th.

According to reports, the Dijon crèche is not the only one to have been vandalized. In Saint-Éloy-les-Mines, in Puy-de-Dôme, figurines were beheaded in mid-December. A few days earlier, a representation of a living crèche had been disrupted in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) by demonstrators defining themselves as "anticapitalists".
