DENISON, Texas -- Looks like the Grinch has arrived in Denison for the holiday season.

At least one homeowner in the 100 block of East Hull Street had a Christmas light projector stolen from her yard, just a couple of blocks from the Eisenhower Birthplace. 

"I hate to hear anyone losing their Christmas decorations," said neighbor Brian Kirby. "I'm not pleased about that at all ... I don't understand it."

Isaac Henson knows something about lighting up his yard for the holidays. He's been going all out for Christmas for more than 30 years.

"When my son was five, six years old, we started decorating because he wanted us to, and it grew and grew and grew," he said.

Henson said his goal is simply to provide a smile... even if someone is trying to steal Christmas cheer.

"If they need them worse than I do, it'll happen. I'll put more up," he said. "I wouldn't hold any ill feelings; I would be disappointed in people, because we do this for everyone... it's not just for us."

Sherman police spokesman Lt. Mike Eppler offered some tips so you can keep your decorations on display all Christmas season.

"If there's something that you're going to be turning off at bedtime, if it's possible, I would suggest moving it indoors where it can be secured," he said. "Otherwise just have some type of lighting if possible."

If you know anything about the stolen Christmas decorations on East Hull, contact the Denison Police Department.
