New York Man Brings Cheer By Becoming a Christmas Tree

A Staten Island resident and self-proclaimed activist decided to protest a recent rule imposed at the Staten Island ferry terminal by the Department of Transportation.

The rule banned Christmas decorations. Their reason was very simple. They wanted to avoid lawsuits.

Scott LoBaido decided to protest the rule in a very positive way. Instead of camping out in the terminal or banging a drum all day, he found a loophole and exploited it. He dressed up as a Christmas tree and wandered the terminal.

People smiled and cheered to see LoBaido roaming the St. George terminal as a Christmas tree. He stated that it is just a costume and that he just happened to wear it that day. LoBaido spent about $400 of his own money to make the costume.

According to LoBaido, the rule is "political correctness gone crazy."
