Whether you’re celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah or both today, I hope you’re enjoying yourself. Today is the perfect day for me to share this link that I came across last month.
Ever wonder what a Nativity set would look like if Jesus had been born this year? Well, thanks to ModernNativity.com, you don’t have to wonder anymore. For only US$129.99 you’ll get a set that includes a stable with solar panels on the rooftop. Jesus is wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger while wearing a knitted white beanie. Joseph wears a man bun with a denim shirt and khaki pants while taking a selfie with Jesus and his wife. Mary, who’s all decked out in skinny jeans and a loose sweater, poses for the photo by showing off her duck face as she’s clutching a Starbucks coffee cup in one hand while flashing a peace sign with the other. A shepherd dressed in jeans is using his mobile device to snap pictures and post them on social media. A white lamb wears a red sweater, which is a nod to this trend of people posting photos of sheep wearing sweaters on Tumblr. A cow, who has been branded as “100% organic,” feeds from a manger that is marked “gluten-free feed.” Rounding out this Nativity set are three modern-day wise men dressed in hipster outfits who arrive to the scene on Segways while bearing gifts that they ordered from Amazon.com.
Here’s a video showing this Nativity set.
The first time I saw this I laughed out loud. If I didn’t have money issues, I definitely would’ve bought this. You can check out photos and another video of this Nativity set right here.
Here are a couple of Christmas sweaters I saw on sale at Target. This one was obviously aimed at men.
This sweater is the saying “He thinks he’s God’s gift to women” come to life.
I’ll end this post with this video featuring Stephen Colbert singing “Another Christmas Song.”
