MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin’s state Capitol was nearly empty on Christmas, with just a few visitors trickling in to pose in front of a massive evergreen tree.

But it was business as usual for the Solidarity Singalong.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1kkFyb7 ) around 20 people gathered inside the Capitol rotunda, staying true to the group’s nearly five-year tradition of singing in protest against the policies of Gov. Scott Walker and his backers each weekday at noon.

Since early December, the group has been singing protest songs to the tune of classic holiday music. The alternate lyrics address topics such as women’s rights, gun control and income inequality. For example, there’s “Have a Holly, Jolly Handgun.”

Friday was the fourth Christmas Day to fall on a weekday since the Solidarity Singalong began.
