Instead of the usual decorated tree at the intersection of E Coast Hwy and Marguerite Ave, I suggested installing a 71-foot faux lighthouse with a loudspeaker that plays holiday music. Someone thought that would be too tall and the idea was dismissed. I think there was concern the lighthouse would dwarf the nearby clock tower and diminish its grandeur. Good call passing on the dog-sized lighted polar bears and other Arctic animals. I think the dolphin topiaries are more California Christmassy and they are a tradition.

Can you say, "Overkill & gaudy"... Waste of money, in my opinion

Are these decorations paid for by the BID, or the Chamber? They are different entities, with different funding sources. In any case, the merchants and residents will decorate their windows and yards, so give new decorations a pass.

I like the refurbishing idea. We tend to make decorations that can be used for different occassions. I know http://www.homeseasons.com/ has a lot of ideas and decoration tips.
