Several days after threats of legal action prompted county officials in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. to remove a nativity scene and a menorah from a courthouse lawn, the nativity scene has been returned to the courthouse lawn.
This time around Santa, snowmen and reindeer were also added to the display.
The original displays were removed from the grounds of the Luzerne County Courthouse after the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church raised objections.
The ACLU complaint said the county was wrong to only display religious decorations.
County officials say they feared a lawsuit, and since the county is broke, they took down the display. However, on Monday it went back up along with other holiday décor.
ACLU attorney Mary Catherine Roper told the Associated Press now that several secular symbols had been added to the display she was satisfied.
