At first glance, Marshfield seems all decked out for the season but many believe Christmas is under assault, so a yuletide revolution is brewing.
“Well I think you should be able to say Merry Christmas. Freedom of speech,” a Marshfield resident said.
It all began when the school system changed the name of vacation to holiday break, eliminating the word Christmas.

Then a Merry Christmas sign set up by town DPW workers was ordered taken down.
“For one or two people to be able to turn everything around and make it change, I think that’s kind of a little bit crazy,” a man said.
But now, Christmas signs are popping up throughout town, some of them set up by local businesses on private property. We found another one that wished a Merry Christmas and on the flip side, a Happy Hanukkah.
“For a few people to be offended by something is unfortunate no one’s trying to offend anybody it’s the Christmas season,” another resident said.
On Saturday morning, demonstrators will gather on the main road leading into town with signs that read “Merry Christmas.”MORE NEWS: Patriots Cut Quinn Nordin From Practice Squad, But He May Be Back Soon
