KOKOMO, Ind. — What do a dinosaur, whale, or fire truck have to do with Christmas? That’s what some Howard County residents are asking after an unusual holiday display was unveiled on the county courthouse lawn.
The lighted displays were donated to the county by an area resident, and are in the shapes of various animals or objects — even the Loch Ness monster.
“It just looks ridiculous,” said Marci Davis, who visited the display with her family. “It is such a terrible representation of our city.”
“If it’s supposed to be Christmas, I don’t know why there’s a dinosaur,” said another woman.
Howard County commissioners Dave Trine and William Thompson helped put up the display and are now fielding complaints from residents.
“If we put the religious or Christmas decorations up, we’d be offending a whole other group of citizens and taxpayers,” said Commissioner Tyler Moore.
Commissioners are mindful that religious displays can lead to legal issues.
“I would love to have a manger scene or nativity scene,” Trine said. “Our counselor has advised against that.”
