Looking for Jesus for Christmas

My Sissie wants a Baby Jesus in a Manger for Christmas. Today, the Airman and I went looking for one in Boone. Ten stores later, we had yet to find Him.

We did find:

Santa and children
Santa and reindeer
Santa and cookies
Shiny packages (that light up!)
Palm trees with lights
72 sizes of Christmas trees and 16 different colours (don't ask!)
M&M guys

No Jesus. No Nativity. Nothing related to the reason for the holiday...

I am puzzled. Where is Jesus? What has happened to Him at this time of year? Better offer? Left town? Or have we forgotten Him?


  1. I've been looking for a nativity set for the old creche my grandfather made for two years now. While I can find some, they are so poorly made with the eyes painted on all crazy, just plain ugly or cheap looking, etc. It seems almost sacrilegious for something that means so much. I'll make a copy of the bonnet pattern and send it to you tomorrow.

  2. I have noticed the same thing on TV.

    Except for shows made for Christian channels, all the Christmas movies about Jesus (or even just about Christians as The Bishop's Wife) are on the old movie networks.

    Definitely a sign of the times.

  3. I have heard more than one news story where any religious nod to the holidays is being banned in schools, towns, well...everywhere! It's horrifying. What happened to freedom of religion? And why are people honoring a giant M&M?

  4. The M&Ms were dressed as Santa! It was kind of creepy....


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
