Frankly, I don't see this as a church/state issue. The display is on private property and both the person who started it and those who are continuing the tradition are private citizens. There is no government involvement, and therefore no 1st Amendment considerations.

"When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am a friend of its happiness: When these things can be said, then may the country boast its constitution and its government." -- Thomas Paine: The Rights Of Man (1791)
