Santa Monica Nativity Moving to Private Property

Ad Feedback

A disputed Santa Monica nativity scene in California is moving to private land.

The news comes less than a week after a federal judge ruled that Santa Monica could ban religious displays on public land.

A Christian group has been setting up series of eight-foot Nativity scenes in Palisades Park for nearly six decades.

"We are 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," Hunter Jameson, chairman of Santa Monica's Nativity Scenes Committee, said in a statement.

Still, lawyers for the group say the move to private land is not a resolution to the case, and they plan to file an appeal.
