DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.,- This year, a Nativity scene in Deerfield Beach, Fla., features a "Festivus pole" made of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans, as well as a Menorah.
The pole, a reference to the Dec. 23 atheist "holiday" that became a pop culture hit after being featured in a "Seinfeld" episode, was installed Thursday by activist blogger Chaz Stevens, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
Stevens said he had been trying to get the city to remove the Nativity scene for five years, and this year he decided to ask for space to express his own beliefs.
"It's just 23 beer cans stacked 8 feet high and conveniently located 6 feet from Baby Jesus," said Stevens.
"Think of how many people have died over the years to give us our freedoms," Stevens said. "So I've got to push back a little."

Festivus. The holiday for the rest of us.
>>”Think of how many people have died over the years to give us our freedoms,” Stevens said.
And so very, very few of them were liberal candy-asses who think they are striking a blow for freedom by making pole out of beer cans.
the rest of whom?
“the rest of whom?”
You have to actually have a sense of humor to know.
It isn't really an atheist holiday. It is mostly a joke people make when they are sick of all the Christmas specials, crazy lines at stores, and Christmas music every where.
“...It is mostly a joke people make when they are sick of all the Christmas specials...”
It’s more about mocking Kwanzaa, the made up holiday.
I personally look forward to the Sun reaching its southernmost declination.
“Stevens said he had been trying to get the city to remove the Nativity scene for five years, and this year he decided to ask for space to express his own beliefs.”
Way to be a little attention whore. You degrade an innocent Nativity scene and take the fun out of a classic TV episode by warping your militant atheistic nonsense all over it.
I just spent four hours tagging along with the GF shopping. I’m so disgusted with “Christmas” I could puke.
The best part of all of it was discovering a feral cat colony behind one of the stores.
can I borrow yours?
The holiday's celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included an unadorned aluminum “Festivus pole”...
This one is just a stack of beer cans, not in the true spirit of Festivus. Even it's getting to commercialized.
Chaz? Chaz? Hmmmmmm. Where have I heard that before?
These are his “own beliefs”.
It’s like saying that your girlfriend was someone you saw every week on television.
It’s that kind of a relationship.
He’s a bigot and needs to be branded as such.
He's a festivus bully.
He's a festivus bully.
The number one goal is to destroy America.
They knew that Americans are strong and independent-minded and that in order to destroy our nation, they must first destroy our culture.
Thus the “anti-establishment” movement.
This included an all out attack on the predominant religion in America: Christianity.
Would you please move your pole another 20 feet away from the Manger.
Another latent yet blatant attack on Christianity.
And not even GOOD beer.
I don’t think they intended the irony but it is thick.
If he really is an atheist, shouldn’t he put nothing up since he believes in nothing?
Geez Joe, you’re going to hack off the devout!!
Quick, find the tissues!
Festivus is just as legit as Kwanzaa.
What a sad man he must be.
No problem for me, as long as they don’t bother the Baby Jesus. ;o)
What a friggin idiot/
Someone needs to knock the crap out of this fool.
That is about two block from my apartment, makes me sick every time I drive on Hillsboro & US 1.
Well, now, doesn’t Jesus just pale in comparison to PBR? And the fellow had to place it nice and close to the Nativity to make it significant.
Isn’t that special.
This guy has ruined Festivus for me. I’m going to go check Craig’s List and see if I can find a new holiday.
