886. Jeremy and his family loved the holiday season. On the Monday before Thanksgiving Day, Jeremy turned on the outdoor Christmas lights, set up the life‐size Nativity scene, and played Christmas music in their front yard. He shut it all down January 2. He'd done this for the last ten years. But on November 1, Jeremy received a notice from the homeowners' association. He could no longer turn on his lights, set up the Nativity scene, or play Christmas music; non‐Christians might be offended. Jeremy called the association president. He said, "Are you crazy? My Christmas display is protected by freedom of speech." She said, "Not if it offends someone." He asked, "Did someone complain?" She said, "No, but someone might." He said, "Well, maybe I should burn down our neighborhood church, because the sight of it might offend someone." She said, "Don't be ridiculous. This is just a Christmas thing." 6.0
