MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The State Capitol is in full holiday mode, with decorations that relate to almost everyone.

A tall Christmas tree was put up yesterday, a balsam fir provided two weeks ago by Jim Draeger of Antigo. The Capitol also has a traditional Nativity scene, and a menorah for Hanukkah.

Madison's Freedom from Religion Foundation has its own nativity scene that steers away from a Christian holiday and celebrates winter. It has a sign which reads "Religion is but myth and superstition." Finally, the Capitol has a pole for "Festivus," the fake holiday created on the old "Seinfeld" comedy show in 1997. It says there will be an "airing of the grievances" next to the Festivus pole on December 23rd.
