Questionable







It looks pretty, but then you realize that there's a wrapped present at the center instead of a Baby Jesus. Hmm. Now that's social commentary, intentional or not.

That's BRILLIANT social commentary.

the bestest scene I ever saw had all the characters gathered around an old television set instead of a manger.

this is just brilliant. I need to RT this.

Q - I'm SO curious how deep the irony extends. I may knock on their door.

Noël - Oh MY that's good...veritable lawn art.

Julia - I was glad I stopped to take pictures; otherwise I wouldn't have noticed that anything was off.

Erin - strange, hey?

Good God. That made my holiday season bright.

Holly 12/11/2010 5:51 PM  

Je Reve - Haha, really? It almost gave me a seizure of incredulity/indignation.

They may be illustrating the metaphor of Christ being the Greatest Gift of All.

Holly 12/13/2010 4:50 PM  

Aren - That's possible too. (One of my friends joked that there might be a Baby Jesus inside the box.) Even so, it would say something that a present is the easiest way to represent "gift."

Wow. That is some very impressive Christmas tat.
