There's no room for the baby Jesus, the manger or the wise men this Christmas in a Santa Monica park following a judge's ruling Monday against churches that tried to keep a 60-year Nativity tradition alive after atheists stole the show with anti-God messages.
Bitter cold and blowing snow put a damper on an outdoor church nativity scene, a decades-old tradition that normally features live people and animals.
Temperatures in Bismarck this week of 15 below to 20 below, with wind chill factors at 50 below, forced closure of the display for one of its four nights before Christmas, said the Rev. Thomas Marcis, pastor of the Zion Lutheran Church.
