Archives ’12: A Festivus Pole Arises Next to Jesus’ Manger in Deerfield Beach.

Out in Deerfield Beach, on a piece of government-owned property, an eight-foot, five-inch-tall tower of beer cans looms over baby Jesus in his manger. No, it isn’t a rogue Art Basel installation that crossed the county line. It’s Chaz Stevens’ heartfelt salute to the holiday season.

Since the end of November, Stevens — a 48-year-old self-proclaimed attention whore and “rabid atheist” whom New Times deemed “Gadfly of the Year” in 2010 — has been girding for battle with the Deerfield Beach City Commission over holiday decorations.

His beef? A Nativity scene and menorah placed on the front lawn of a city firehouse at the corner of Hillsboro Boulevard and Federal Highway. Stevens argued he should be allowed to construct his own holiday exhibit nearby.
