Christmas Scene Displays move onto Private Property
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec 3, 2012 - The City of Santa Monica, California has banned all Christmas Nativity scenes and "unattended displays" in Palisades Park after nearly 60 years. However, there are no prohibitions on live Nativity displays. A live Nativity display is planned for Palisades Park on Saturday, Dec 8th at 1 p.m.
On Sunday, Dec 9th, Nativity scene displays next to Clover Park in Santa Monica are scheduled to open. The static Nativity display location has been moved from Palisades Park to private property on the 2700 block of Ocean Park Blvd. between Clover Park & 28th St. Displays will be up through January 5th, 2013.
Hunter Jameson, Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee Chairman said " We're deeply grateful for the use of this new site to allow all of Santa Monica's distinctive Christmas Story to continue spreading the message of joy, hope and peace found in the Christ child's birth."
