This Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012 photo shows avowed atheist Damon Vix in his home in Burbank, Calif.  Vix last year won two-thirds of the booths in the annual, city-sponsored lottery to divvy up spaces in a live-sized Nativity display in Palisades Park in Santa Monica, Calif.  But he only put up one thing: A sign that read "Religions are all alike - founded on fables and mythologies." Vix left the rest of his allotted spaces empty, and in so doing, upended a Christmas tradition that began in Santa Monica nearly 60 years ago. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)
