War on Christmas. Act One: Dickens Christmas Festival will now be known as Dickens Holiday Festival

'Christ' Taken Out Of Christmas Festival

Downtown Development Coordinator Michelle Sponseller said many people are unhappy with the change.

3. I prefer the Edmund Wells Holiday Festifal.
He wrote "Grate Expectations", "Barnaby Rudge", and "A Sale of Two Titties"
