It wasn't the Grinch who stole Christmas, after all. Police say it was a group of women who allegedly swiped 15 wreaths, a Santa flag and a 5-foot-tall red-nosed Rudolph lawn reindeer during a night of prankish fun in the Towson area.But the only gift the women -- all 18 years old -- have gotten for the pranks is a day in court. The women -- four of them Towson State University students and the other a visitor from New York -- were each given a summons yesterday charging them with six counts of petty theft for Sunday's incidents, said E. Jay Miller, a Baltimore County police spokesman.

Mockingbirds, sparrows and squirrels have been feasting on the few remaining apples hanging from our Yellow Delicious tree. I purposely left the apples on the tree, you see, to give them a helping hand. The apples won't be hanging from the tree much longer, though. So shortly, I'll set-up our winter holidays animal-feeding station, a homemade holiday wreath that's stuffed with blemished apples that are in winter storage and won't keep. The first holiday wreaths were made by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Persians.

Nancy Gregg took time out from her holiday shopping last week to deliver a wreath filled with child-sized paper hands and grinning foam-board faces to the Carroll County Arts Council. Preschoolers in Gregg's care at the Child Development Center at Carroll Community College fashioned the wreath and dubbed it "Festive Faces." It is one of more than 200 entries in a five-day silent auction during the council's eighth annual Festival of Wreaths, opening Wednesday at the Carroll Arts Center in downtown Westminster.

'Tis the season to experience the unexpected. Finding Santa and his reindeer on your roof. Finding just the right gift. Well-behaved children. And the world's largest Christmas wreath, on Clemsonville Road near Union Bridge.The decoration weighs 9,060 pounds, has an 116-foot diameter and is made with 8-foot evergreen trees attached to an oak frame.Clemsonville Tree Farm owner Michael Ryan and his sons build it afresh every year. It takes 200 trees and a football field-length of ribbon. No wonder it's in the "Guinness Book of World Records" (page 125 of the 1992 paperback edition)

One of the more enduring staples of holiday decor is the wreath. Posted indoors or on the home's front door, the simplest wreath adds a welcoming gesture. Crafted from fresh evergreens, it can impart an aroma as intoxicating as Grandma's Christmas cookies. Although the placement of a wreath somewhere in the home has become a tradition in many American families, its history is vague. Wreaths were imported from Europe by early settlers. Most probably were crafted from evergreens from the countryside: spruce, pine, cedar, boxwood, hemlock and holly.

HURRY," she commanded, ushering me into her kitchen.Pausing in the doorway, I quickly surveyed the scene. Decapitated poinsettias were strewn about the floor. Grape vines snaked through the table legs. There were tiny, gold pine cones in her hair."Now, be honest," she said. "Look at this and tell me what you think. I think it looks just like the one we saw at the craft show last weekend."At first glance it appeared to be a wreath of some type. I started to pick it up for a better look. It wouldn't budge."

By the time the wind had stopped blowing, needles from my neighbor's white pine tree were all over our place. It was a wonderful windfall, though, because I'd been handed bundles of free "pine findings" (dry pine needles), a perfect material for mulching acid-loving plants. In the meantime, my neighbor's white pine was no worse for wear, because right on schedule, and even though it looked a little ragged, the 20-year-old tree had simply shed its 2-year-old needles that had turned yellow and brown several weeks earlier.

Joseph Vogel of Parkville had never seen this angel before, nor the blow-up Santa, the reindeer, the baby Jesus. But when he woke up Thursday morning and looked out front of his two-story house, there they were, along with a string of snowflakes, lights, a wreath and Christmas packages. All the Christmas decorations were stolen from elsewhere, and placed on his lawn in the 2400 block of Autumn View Way with great care in the dead of night. "Whoever did this went through an elaborate effort to decorate somebody's lawn," said Vogel, who had a furlough day Thursday from his job in procurement at the University of Maryland, College Park.
