It's been nearly a month since the iconic Santa Claus statue was stolen from atop the concrete hopper at Mohr Concrete, 915 S. Maple Ave., but Santa lovers nostalgic for Old Saint Nick can get a little bit of history at Lively Athletics.

The Oak Park-based athletics store, 109 N. Oak Park Ave., has released a T-shirt with the Mohr Santa that states: "It's Always Christmas In Oak Park."

Still no word from Mohr on the case of the missing Santa, but we're starting to suspect a new culprit. Check out the Santa tees on Lively's website at https://www.livelyathletics.com/shop/.

    @Ann, you are funny! This could be a plot for a movie.

    My sister Kate and I own Lively and would like to go on record as strongly resenting the implication we had anything to do with the kidnapping of Santa. We are sure Santa is safe and sound and happy -for now- and will remain that way as long as the village of Oak Park agrees to rename Oak Park Avenue as Lively Avenue. And make July 5th "Annual Lively Day". Thank you for the lovely article about our t-shirt. You have 24 hours to comply.
