In Marshfield, Massachussetts, Christmas has been on a losing streak. First, back in September, the local school board decided that the school break during the Christmas holiday would be called the “Holiday Break” instead of “Christmas Break.” No big deal, you say? Maybe not. But it was a big enough deal that more than 4,000 residents signed a petition to keep the Christmas in Christmas break. Still, the school board stuck to their guns and kept the Holiday break moniker.
That decision stuck with the people of Marshfield, and when the local city council told the Department of Public Works to remove signs wishing folks a “Merry Christmas” from private property – because the signs did not conform with city guidelines – residents decided that they’d had enough.
This past Saturday dozens of local townsfolk gathered along the city’s main thoroughfare to protest FOR Christmas. They stood in the cold and waved signs wishing their fellow residents a “Merry Christmas!”
“This is America the last time I looked. We were founded on Christianity and it seems to me like Christianity is starting to be wiped out. It’s the melting pot. Melt and merge,” said one local woman.
