Happy Solstice from the Capitol grounds

A sign marking the Winter Solstice, erected by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, is up on the Capitol campus as part of the annual duel over holiday-time displays. A Nativity Scene is also up, about 50 yards to the south. (Jim Camden)

OLYMPIA -- This year's version of the "war over Christmas" is pretty tame.

A Nativity Scene and a sign from an atheist organization, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, are coexisting nicely on the lawn in the park to the east of the Capitol and Insurance buildings.

A Menorrah for Hannukah is up in Sylvester Park, about four blocks north, not far from a well decorated Christmas tree.
