Baby Jesus, Err......



A Cornish couple decorating their home were shocked to find that an image of the baby Jesus appeared on their wallpaper. Sheila and Richard Woolhouse were stripping old wallpaper from their kitchen when they spotted it.

The damp marking appears to show a baby wrapped in linen Mrs Woodhouse said that the image looked like the baby Messiah. ”It’s spooky – it looks like the baby Jesus. They way it looks like a child wrapped in swaddling – it really has got religious connotations. The more you look at it, the more real it becomes. A few of the neighbours and friends have been round and they have been surprised by it as well.”

Well, err, maybe.. Hmm I suppose it’s refreshing to see Jesus as a baby instead of sporting a beard....
