17 Very Theologically Questionable Nativity Scenes You Can Own

The story of Jesus’ birth has inspired creatives for 2000 years, as artists have crafted beautiful and historically accurate depictions of a babe in a manger.

But over the last few years, that art has taken a turn. There’s still the classic nativity sets available at every Christian craft store, but now many “artists” have given the holy scene a twist.

We realized it was finally time for us to rank the most absurd nativity scenes in all of history. Let’s get into it:

Gnome Nativity

“Gnome-el, gnome-el!”

Socially Distanced Nativity

Guess that explains why there’s only immediate family here.

“Next stop, Bethlehem!”

Of course the wise man would try and give directions.

Duck Nativity

Jesus came to cleanse us, but maybe not with bath toys.

Irish Nativity

Last time we checked, we didn’t think Jesus was Irish…

Angry Nativity

We wouldn’t be thrilled to be born in a barn either, but this seems a bit extreme.

Woodland Creatures Nativity

There’s a lot to unpack here.

Minimalist Nativity

Truly the bare minimum.

Minimalist Ball Nativity

We stand corrected.

Dog Nativity

Dogs are angels, so this feels the most biblically accurate.

Frog Nativity

To paraphrase one of the most iconic tweets of all time, “When God sings with his creations, will a frog not be part of the choir?”

Mermaid Nativity

Sure, why not?

Butter Nativity

Paula Deen would be proud.

Frankenstein Nativity

“Oh, you said frankincense? I thought you said Frankenstein.”

Bullet Nativity

This one really shocked us.

Meat Nativity

There’s something about the farm animals being made of meat that just doesn’t sit right with us.

Hipster Nativity

The solar panel on the roof is a nice touch.
