Have you ever wondered what the nativity scene would look like if Jesus was born in 2016? We haven’t either. But Casey Wright did. Now, three wise men are rocking all the funny stereotypes by bringing Amazon Prime gifts on Segways, Joseph is sporting a man bun and taking a selfie, and Mary is doing the infamous “duckface,” showing a peace sign and holding a cup of latte along with the baby Jesus. All these and other small details are part of this Hipster Nativity Set.
“After a few beers, we started joking about how religions would be different if their sacred texts were set in modern times,” Modern Nativity’s founder Casey Wright said. “We have quickly found out that this Christmas decoration is very polarizing,” he claimed. “It’s usually, ‘This is hilarious, I need one,’ or ‘This is sacrilegious, I hope you burn in hell,’ and almost nothing in between those two extremes.”
The hipster-style set which features 7-inch hand-painted polyresin figurines costs $129.99. What do you think about this modern take on Bethlehem’s memorable night and the Christmas spirit?
