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 right of voting for representatives is the primary right by which other rights are protected. To take away this right is to reduce a man to slavery, for slavery consists in being subject to the will of another, and he that has not a vote in the election of representatives is in this case." -- Thomas Paine: First Principles of Government (1995)
