While some people may still be salty about that Starbucks’ minimalist holiday cup design that began a “war on Christmas,” one Spring Hill, Tennessee McDonald’s is single-handedly trying to but the “Christ” back in “Christmas.”

When Tennessee resident Amy Basel drove past her nearby McDonald’s location, she was taken aback by the display she saw on the restaurant’s window: a full-on nativity scene. 


Basel explains in a Facebook post that she couldn’t believe her eyes. It isn’t every day that you see a nativity scene on your local McDonald’s.

With nearly 56,000 Facebook shares and almost 75,000 likes, the post has clearly struck a nerve. Thousands of people commented on Basel’s photo to show their support for the franchise’s display of faith.


Fox 17 spoke to the location’s co-owner, Gina Wolfe, who explained the decision to rep the nativity on the store’s windows:

“It’s a family business which has been owned and operated by my family for 40 years. My dad started this 40 years ago when he had a local art student paint it on his store. My husband and I have been owners for 28 years and we’ve done this or something similar during Christmas each year. I guess with social media, it’s taken off…We have so many people that tell us it really kicks off the season for them when they see it on our stores. We are so pleased people enjoy it.”
