Haunted House Manager Sets Up Zombie Manger

Jasen Dixon, for the second year in a row, has set up a manger featuring the undead honoring a zombie baby Jesus. This is despite being ordered to take it down last year--it is also against the town's wishes.

In addition, Dixon manages the "13 Rooms of Doom" haunted house. Dixon needs a permit for the display. He applied, but he was turned down. As a result, he faces a fine of $500 a day for each day he leaves it up. He has begun soliciting donations to help cover the financial sanctions.

On his Facebook page, Dixon wrote “We were going to take it down, decided to leave it up, all the lights are re-hooked and open for business just no roof. Let’s see what happens.”

Dixon says his permit was denied because local authorities said his display violated the town’s zoning code by taking up more than 35 percent of his front yard.

Dixon stated, “I got all the paperwork and how it was wrote out, and it says as long as it’s not over 200-square -foot that I can have it without a permit, and it’s about 65 square foot. I think it’s the theme. It just rubs people the wrong way. That’s why they’re coming down so hard on me.”

On Friday, Dixon received a $500 fine. Dixon stated, “My father hates it. The other neighbors, they drive by and give me a thumbs-up."

He added that Christian protesters handed out pamphlets Sunday in front of his display reading “God frowns upon this manger display."
