Robert Ray, right, of Granite Falls, Wash., puts up a "Festivus Pole" supporting gay rights as his family looks on Monday at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash. The pole, based on a fictional holiday depicted in the popular 1990s television sitcom "Seinfeld," is one of several displayed at other state capitols across the country, and was displayed in Olympia near a Biblical nativity scene and a winter solstice display put up the the Freedom from Religion Foundation.
