(December 19, 2013 – Chicago) An early Christmas gift is available to those who would like to display a privately sponsored and funded Christmas nativity scene in a designated or traditional public forum, either inside or close to their state capitol or city hall next year, in December 2014. Applications will be accepted between now and December 25, 2013 for a free cr-che display, available for use in any traditional or designated public forum.

The first 50 manger displays approved will receive no-cost assistance in the legal permit process from the Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based not-for-profit public interest law firm that has facilitated the display of religious holiday tableaux throughout the country.
