Billboards will begin going up today around Sacramento with messages you wouldn't expect to see during the holiday season. In fact, you might find them offensive.

You might see someone you know on one of the 55 billboards expected to go up today in the region -- someone who is coming out of the closet, so to speak, as an athiest.

The billboards are being sponsored by the Greater Sacramento Chapter of the Freedom from Religion Foundation and will feature various messages from local athiests who want to let others know they can celebrate the season without feeling pressured to celebrate God.
