But some say the white and blue display looks more like something out of “Star Trek” than “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” “Santa comes along with a decorated tree; he doesn’t come with a spaceship,” Maria Lovdahl fumed.

Those were important distinctions. The fear that a gunman was on the loose in International Plaza caused the mall to shut down.
