SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Paradise man claims he discovered a miracle in the produce section of his local grocery.

In a letter to News10, Mike Zachweija said he went shopping to buy bananas a few days before Christmas. He glanced at a bunch of coconuts and noticed one that looked like it had a silhouette of a face on it. 

Impressed with the image Zachweija bought the coconut.

On Christmas Day Zachweija said he decided to take some pictures of the coconut before the image faded away.

In his letter he wrote:

"As the first picture I took appeared on my small digital camera, I could hardly believe what I was looking at. The silhouette face now had some color and much more detail, with added Christmas sunlight. The face looked very much like that of Jesus."

Zachweija said he's not an overly religious person but believes, "Jesus sent out his own Christmas card greeting by way of a simple coconut."
