The War on Christmas is in full swing, and Florida is the latest battle ground. Governor Rick Scott has approved the installation of an 8-foot tall Festivus pole in front of the Florida State Capitol Building. After learning that there was a nativity manger and Three Wise Men display in front of the Capitol, Florida-resident, and self-proclaimed "militant atheist" Chaz Stevens asked permission to erect her own holiday monument. When Mr. Stevens was asked why he wanted to install the pole, he simply said, "I figured [that] one ridiculous act required another." The 8-foot pole is made up of empty Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans, and it commemorates the parody holiday based on the TV show Seinfield. Fesitvus is celebrated on December 23rd, and it's a non-commercial holiday "for the rest of us" who don't follow typical religious traditions. Regardless of how we feel about Festivus, we should still be thankful to Chaz Stevens for getting Fox so-called News to cover anything besides Obamacare. That is a true holiday miracle.
