You know how the old saying goes: “You can tell a lot about a person’s theology from their Christmas nativity set.”

OK, so maybe that’s not true, but wouldn’t it be great to forgo all of those heated theological conversations by simply glancing over at your neighbor’s coffee table to judge their beliefs appropriately? After all, what’s Christmas if you’re not avoiding uncomfortable conversations?

Here are a few nativity sets that might raise a few questions. We’re not saying to avoid these theologically questionable nativities. We’re just saying you might want to not display them when grandma’s over.

Superhero Nativity:

If these superheroes think they can save the world, just wait until they meet the baby in the manger.

Bacon Nativity:

Ah bacon, so tender and mild. We’re not entirely sure what a meat manger scene says about a person’s theology, but it’s definitely not kosher.

Butter Nativity :

Carving out over 50 nativity pieces of butter has to be time-consuming, and for this reason we are only deeming this one to be margarine-ally questionable.

Millennial Nativity:

Do you think millennial Mary and Joseph are the type of parents who have a hashtag for their baby or an entirely different Instagram account for him?

Ghost Nativity:

You know, when you run out of swaddling cloth and have to use a bed sheet with two convenient eye holes cut out.

Soda Nativity:

Praise the Father, Son and Holy Coke.

Balloon Nativity:

At least this nativity tried to represent the Christmas story with some accuracy. Maybe a good balloon nativity is what we all need to really make the holidays *pop.*

Dog Nativity:

Son of Man’s Best Friend.
