When hipster Jesus was born

Away in a manger, a solar-powered barn overhead.


We all know the story: three wise men on segways followed either a star or Google Maps to the town of Bethlehem where, inside a solar-panelled barn guarded by a 100% organic cow and a sheep in an ugly Christmas sweater, Mary and Joseph took their first selfie with their baby boy, the son of god.

Sigh. Just when you thought your Christmas d├ęcor was covered with that locally sourced, hand-crafted, racially diverse nativity scene that set you back $74 dollars at 10,000 Villages, there’s this.

“If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you,” as the plug for Modern Nativity puts it. It can be yours for $129.99 USD.
