The Satanic Temple is set to celebrate with decorations at Florida’s Capitol this year.

According to CBSMiami, among the nativity scenes and other presentations in the first floor rotunda will be a cotton and cardboard diorama of an angel falling into hell.

The Florida Department of Management Services this week approved a proposed holiday display from the Satanic Temple, which was rejected last year for being “grossly offensive.”

The temple’s entry will be displayed in the first-floor rotunda of the Tallahassee Capitol for the end-of-year holiday period.

The approved display features a banner with the phrase “Happy Holidays From The Satanic Temple” atop a diorama of an angel falling into hell.

The temple, which threatened to sue after being rejected last year but never took action, is scheduled to put up its display Dec. 22.
