The reality is that you could not avoid a Christmas experience in America if you tried. Yet for some, this is not enough. The cries of a 'War on Christmas,' a seasonal staple of the Religious Right, echo through the decked halls.

The removal came after Americans United received a local complaint last December and sent Emmaus a letter requesting the library stop displaying the religious scene.
