NEWTOWN, CT - DECEMBER 14:  Christmas lights adorn a tree near the former site of Sandy Hook Elementary school on December 14, 2013 in Newtown, Connecticut. One year ago Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 first graders and six adults at the school. Newtown decided not to hold a public memorial on the anniversary out of respect for victims' survivors, and the town appealed for privacy.  (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

A group of disgruntled residents in a town of 2,100 are coming together to rise up for the tiny town’s removal of a cross atop their town’s Christmas tree following a recent lawsuit.

The ACLU sued the town on behalf of a resident, claiming the cross on top of the town’s Christmas tree is a violation of First Amendment rights guaranteeing separation of church and state. The suit requested the cross be removed and the town pay the resident damages. Hundreds of residents have put crosses up in their yards, stores, windows and even cars in lieu of the tree topper removal. – – > CLICK HERE for FULL STORY
