With the holidays upon us, many associations have spruced up their common areas with decorations. This can be a conundrum for many board members and managers (and attorneys as well). Do you know where to draw the line between religious and secular symbols. You likely know not to put up a nativity scene, but you may wonder if it would be ok to put up images of Santa Claus with signs that say, “Merry Christmas.” Can the association have a Christmas tree in the clubhouse? What about decorations for Hanukah? Kwanza?

Happy Holidays from all of us at SwedelsonGottlieb.
