Spokesmen for the airport said, “This is their busiest time of year and they don’t have time to add a fair representation of all cultures, her department decided to take down all of the decorations, review their policies, and decide if they need to make a change for next year.”

Past legal rulings have stated that public property in the US must have what is called the three reindeer rule, any religious representation on public property must also have representation of other religions.
