CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Atheists have claimed their space among the holiday displays at Daley Plaza.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation set up a big letter 'A' Tuesday among the Christkindlmarket and menorah decorations.

The group applied for and received a permit to put up their ‘A' to coincide with the winter solstice.

Other Atheist groups have put up a similar display at the state capitol in Springfield, Ill.

FFRF claimed that as many as 20 percent of Americans are not religious. While the Christmas manger scene has been in Daley Plaza for almost 30 years, this is the first year for the ‘A.'
