The Santa Monica City Council has put on hold any decision to ban Christmas nativity scenes and other holiday displays at Palisades Park.

The City Council on Tuesday delayed a decision until at least June 12.

The city attorney has recommended banning all displays in the park, following opposition from a group of atheists.

The scenes, which include Christmas displays and a menorah, have been a tradition for nearly 60 years.
