‘His name is Jesus’: McDonald’s painted nativity scene a hit
COLUMBIA, Tennessee, December 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A McDonald’s restaurant in Tennessee offers pleasantly surprised customers and passersby a larger-than-life nativity scene painted across a large bank of floor-to-ceiling windows.
In addition to depictions of the Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph on the mural, large lettering declares, “His Name is Jesus” and “Believe.”
The owners of the McDonald’s franchise in Columbia, Tennessee, Tony and Gina Wolfe, also own another nearby and a third in Spring Hill. The Wolfes told local TV station WZTV that their family has adorned all three locations with artwork presenting the meaning of Christmas for many years.
“It's a family business which has been owned and operated by my family for 40 years. 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,” explained Gina Wolfe in a FOX 17 News interview in 2015.
The honoring of the birth of Jesus Christ amid what is now a mostly politically correct, secularized, consumer-driven annual Christmas season is a welcome respite for the Wolfes’ customers.
One customer said, “I totally support what they do and that’s why I keep coming back.”
