I live in Hitchcock, Texas but was born in Santa Monica and lived there until I was 14. I have very fond memories of the nativity displays. My parents and I would walk in that beautiful park overlooking the ocean and part of our Christmas tradition was to see the displays. I can‚Äôt understand why the atheists can‚Äôt allow Christians a couple of weeks in December to enjoy the story of the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. Seventy-five percent of our nation‚Äôs population is Christian.
Anyone can buy pot in Santa Monica, gay marriage is OK. Why not Christmas? I pray that the City Council will work harder to find a way to restore the nativity displays. Santa Monica is a progressive city with good people.
