Missing Baby Jesus found by a reader of the Batavian

The Baby Jesus that was reported missing from a manger scene at All Babies Cherished yesterday has been found.

A woman who read about the missing Baby Jesus on The Batavian yesterday told her husband about the incident when he arrived home from work last evening. The woman's husband said he spotted it in a bush near a snowbank on Hutchins Street on his way home. He then went to Hutchins Street and retrieved the plastic Baby Jesus.

Tammy Arneth, executive director of All Babies Cherished, says the Batavia couple plans on returning the Baby Jesus to the nativity scene at 445 Ellicott St. on Thursday.

Nothing brings the community closer together than the search for a missing piece of plastic.

Kudos to the couple for going to the trouble of retrieving the doll, rather than just letting it sit in that snow bank.

Thank you Tim. I am sure the folks at All Babies Cherished feel the same. It isn't the pigment or the material used, but what the infant representd that is important.

Well Bea, you sure put me in my place. It's still the whitest looking piece of baby Jesus plastic I've ever seen. No worries..I'm getting coal for Christmas...4 and a half tons of it.

Coal? Why, for peat's sake? For Pete's sake, Doug!

Because I heat with it. I guess if coal is here, God made it sometime within the past 6000 years, even though scientists know that coal originates from forests that grew during the CARBONIFEROUS period.

The Carboniferous Period lasted from about 359.2 to 299 million years ago during the late Paleozoic Era. Coal beds, which can be up to 11 to 12 meters thick, characterize the late Carboniferous. The forests of seedless vascular plants that existed in the tropical swamp forests of Europe and North America provided the organic material that became coal.

I love a good pile of anthracite in the basement! It's one of the best christmas prezzies evar!
