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.

"To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture."-- Thomas Paine: The Crisis No. V (March 21, 1778)
