Jesus versus Santa Claus
December 18, 2009
A controversial Christmas lawn display in Nipomo is getting national attention, thanks to stories broadcast on both CNN and Fox News.
KCOY Channel 12 reports that artist Ron Lake has created a display depicting Jesus holding a shotgun over the dead body of Santa Claus. Lake has said publicly that the display is his take on the growing commercialism of Christmas.
Neighbors have complained and want the display removed, but it is on private property. Lake does take the figures down during the evening.
