Walton County has erected an annual Christmas nativity scene for as long as people can remember. This year, Alex Luchenitser of the Americans United for Separation has filed a complaint on behalf of unknown (if any) residents about the exclusively Christian scene to commorate Christmas. Americans United for Separation argued that the scene must included other, secular symbol, such as Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer visiting the birth of Jesus, along with the Three Wise Men. This is perfectly accepable. Santa Claus is questionable since Santa is known as Saint Nick and Americans United for Separation would not stand for any saintly figures.
So, the display on the Walton County Courthouse lawn wiil include these other characters in the nativity scene.
