A "Merry Christmas" banner has been removed from the Town Green in Woodbury. The sign was put up by a neighbor several weeks ago. First Selectman Bill Butterly told WFSB-TV that the green is technically owned by the state Department of Transportation. The DOT only allows signs that are transportation related, and removes those that are safety concerns or prompt complaints.
Butterly said someone took exception to the banner. The person said they are non-Christian and that the sign offended them.
Some neighbors held what they called a Merry Christmas Removal protest on Sunday on the town green. They held signs in support of Christmas.
