A Festivus For the Rest of Us

"BARTOW, Fla. - When a church group put a nativity scene on public property, officials warned it might open the door to other religious — and not-so-religious — displays. They were right. Since the nativity was erected in Polk County, displays have gone up honoring Zoroastrianism and the fake holiday Festivus, featured on the TV show 'Seinfeld.'"

The Polk county commission voted earlier this week to allow a nativity scene to be placed across the street from the court house with the stipulation that the area be designated a "public forum" available for any type of display as long as the commission receives a written request to have the display remain.

No word on when the airing of grievances and feats of strength are scheduled in the Polk County Festivus celebration.
