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.

"The genius of the Constitution rests not in any static meaning it might have had in a world that is dead and gone, but in the adaptability of its great principles to cope with current problems and current needs." -- Justice William Brennan: Speech to the Text and Teaching Symposium at Georgetown University (October 12, 1985)
