Smashing Christmas: Vandals Batter Holiday Decor

VIDEO: Cameras catch vandals trashing holiday decorations across the country.

While elaborate lighting displays are making the season extra merry for delighted onlookers, not everyone is in the holiday spirit: three Christmas displays in different places in the country have been trashed by vandals this month.

  • Grinches tossed the baby Jesus from a nativity scene onto a homeowner's driveway and battered other decorations in a subdivision in Milton, Ga.
  • In Port Charlotte, Fla., someone knocked over a lighting display in the shape of a Christmas tree and wreaked other havoc in a couple's front yard.
  • And at a Fairfax Station, Va. home, surveillance cameras captured footage of two young men using baseball bats and their car to destroy holiday decor, causing at least an estimated $6,000 in damages.

Watch footage of vandals in action below and see the full story on "20/20? tonight at 10 p.m. ET.
