There should never be arguments about Christmas decorations place anywhere. It is our holiday we are allowed to decorate no matter if it is our homes church's store fronts streets or towns. I am so tired other ppl are offended by our celebration Christ was born. If ppl are so offended look the other way stay in your homes. Leave our holiday alone. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

Nothing wrong with the decorations. Just homeowners should be aware of the fire risks associated with electrical wiring. As a NJ home insurance agent, I've seen my fair share of associated claims.
Christmas Cheers

Was told that public places where a no no for displaying Holy Christmas themes . I told them
at Rockerfeller Center Skating Rink every December the Catholic Priest bless the Rockerfeller Tree each year since 1951. The property is owned privately. I was there on December 22nd and I witnessed plenty of soliders with guns protecting the area.

I believe the airports are still open. If some members of the Lakewood community are so offended by our Christmas trees fly away where there are no Christmas trees. Be happy and a Merry Christmas to all!!!
