Christmas Ornaments

I get my old hometown newspaper....from Bama.  This past week, they had a front-page story.  The local library makes up Christmas ornaments which they sell each year.....to mark something special about the community.  Folks buy these for around $8.  In Europe, it's a traditional thing there.  Usually, there's scenic things like some chapel, or a Christmas tree, or some kids by a fireplace.

The ornament featured in the paper?  It's the old city jail from around 90 years ago.

I tried to make some Christmas sense out of this.  City jail?  For Christmas?

There are a couple thousand possibilities for a ornament, but the city jail wouldn't be on my list.
