SIMPSONVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Simpsonville woman is angry after a note was left taped to a Santa in her yard.

It happened in the Orchard Park neighborhood in Simpsonville. Judy Vasquez showed us the note taped to cover the Santa's face.

"St. Nicholas - Original Santa was European not African," said the note. "This is not a race issue. Just historical ... Santa is not black, he's white."

"When I heard that, it was like I got kicked in the gut," Vasquez said. "Somehow, I just felt violated that someone would take the time to put something like that on a Santa that I have, and I just ... I'm heartbroken, really. This is a great community and I don't know who did that. I will never know who did that. But you are a coward."

Judy said her belief is Santa represents everyone, and she is disgusted someone would do this and try to ruin her family's Christmas spirit.
