The Hipster Nativity

I was delighted when the Hipster Nativity was brought to my attention in a CNBC article. Really works for me,  especially with its black magus and the kings looking very cool on their Segways and dark glasses to protect their eyes from that bright star!

But it was not without controversy Casey Wright, co-founder of Modern Nativity the folks who make the Hipster Nativity told CNBC "We have quickly found out that this product is very polarizing. 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 default composition for the Nativity dates back to Francis of Assis in 1223. He used what was around him to tell the story of the birth of Jesus so what’s wrong with telling that same story today but using images and ideas from 2016 rather than 1223? New take on an old story - love it!
