For many years, the city of Pawtucket, Rhode Island sponsored a Christmas display that included Santa Claus, Christmas trees, and a miniature Christmas village. The display also included a nativity scene that was seen by some in Pawtucket as an inappropriate religious symbol on public property. The Rhode Island chapter of the ACLU sued to have the nativity scene removed, leading to a landmark case on the role of religion in public life.
