The 2013 PBR Festivus Road Trip!

Hat-tip to the anonymous emailer for this tidbit:

FIRST NATIVITY SCENE IN MODERN HISTORY UNVEILED AT CAPITOL

For the first time in modern Florida history, a nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ will be on display in the state Capitol throughout December. Religious leaders and schoolchildren prayed and sang Christmas carols at the unveiling on the first floor of the Capitol rotunda Tuesday.
