Country: France

Date of incident: December 25, 2021


On Christmas Eve, Jesus and some other figures from the nativity scene in the church of Saint-Ronan of Locronan, mysteriously disappeared. The carving was a treasure of the village and the parishioners were outraged by this disrespectful act. Antoine Gabriele the mayor of Locronan called it "lamentable" and "despicable".

"Of course there are more serious things in life" said the mayor. But in regard to the volunteers around the nativity and the many tourists that come through he added "for one fool, hundreds of people are affected".
