In the spirit of the First Amendment, my liberal neighbors here in Massachusetts will be treated to the nativity scene on my front lawn, Santa on the Roof of my garage, and a large decorated Christmas tree in the front yard, with a modest blinking sign wishing them a Merry Christmas.

I live in the Denver area and my liberal neighbor who is a teacher understands why "Merry Christmas" can't be used in school but is very upset that she can't have a Santa in her room or Christmas trees. They just don't get it.

What if the parade of lights had a gay Santa in a red thong with white trim holding a sign saying merry gay holidays.
Even though that would offend the majority of people - it would be PC and acceptable. Whatever

The First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof .......

Translation: It is unconstitutional for Congress to establish the Church of the United States of America and it is unconstitutional for Government to prohibit you from wishing someone a Merry Christmas.

A lawsuit all the way up to SCOTUS is in order here.
