Photo Friday – What Would Jesus Do?

No one can find baby Jesus at the Costco display.

(I already posted this photo on Facebook, and some Catholic friends weighed in. Apparently Jesus isn’t supposed to be in the manger until 12/24, since technically he wasn’t alive until then. Of course, as one respondent posted, the only people who should be there at this date are the shepherds, since the three wise men have no need to bring gifts at this point. And the back-and-forth between a rabbi and a Catholic on my Facebook post was priceless (something about transubstantiation and the resurrection). Bottom line: there are all kinds of traditions when it comes to putting out the nativity scene. But from this uninformed viewpoint, it’s still pretty funny to see everyone looking for Jesus – because he’s not there).


  1. I didn’t see any nativity scene at our Costco. I would have wondered where Baby Jesus is too!

  2. I think baby Jesus was in the hospital getting circumcised. Check with his doctor fto verify or dispute this.
