FFRF solstice greetings from around the country

Vol. 35 No. 01 January/February 2018
Elaine Stone stands next to the Bill of Rights display sign she made by taking the image and printing it on an outdoor mesh in Walnut Creek, Calif. She writes: “FedEx/Kinko’s did a great job of reproducing it. I just wrote in permanent marker, ‘Solstice is the Reason for the Season.’ I didn’t go for an explanation of what it meant because all I cared about was that there was something there to counteract the large crèche that is there every year. I live in a senior community and the crèche and my sign are on private property. The really good news is that it hasn’t been vandalized (yet), in contrast to our previous three constructions, all of which were knocked down. It makes a real statement without being offensive. The sign has been received very well by the few I have encountered who have mentioned it.”
