Authorities are investigating the theft of an unusual topper from a tree decorated by the San Jose chapter of The Satanic Temple as part of this year’s Christmas in the Park.Isn't it cultural appropriation for Satanist to have the Christmas tree? Just sayin'.
The void once occupied by a large black goat head mask was filled Tuesday by a red star and a wood-engraved sign informing onlookers that a new topper was “coming soon.”
“Our intention was simply to bond with our community, craft a beautiful tree and be part of a San Jose tradition,” said chapter spokeswoman Sadie Satanas, who donated the religious symbol — constructed of clay, papier-mâché, foam, and silk — from her personal collection.
The topper was stolen late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, but the chapter didn’t learn it was missing until Monday. A report has been filed with the San Jose Police Department.
