Spring Hill, Tennessee. A fast food restaurant is causing quite the stir at the moment. As Christmas approaches, the owners of five local McDonald’s restaurants paint large scale nativity scenes of their restaurant windows, in celebration of the time of year and Christ’s birth.
Gina and Tony Wolfe own the McDonald’s franchise. “It’s a family business which has been owned and operated by my family for 40 years”, says Gina. “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.”
The picture was taken by a lady called Amy Basel and uploaded onto her Facebook page, along with this message: “Drove by and did a double-take. Growing up in the mitten, you would NEVER see this. Tennessee McDonald’s…you made my day. ‘His name is Jesus’.” It’s since got more than 130,000 likes and over 80,000 shares!
