Cute Nativity Scenes

The nativity scene is just an inexhaustible goldmine. I already wrote something about this in the piece on homemade nativity scenes and in no way am I done yet with this subject. On the website wallcoo.com, there is a collection of posters depicting the nativity scene in a disturbingly cute manner. I can't decide what is so disturbing about it exactly, the colors, the roundness of things, the fact that children had a baby, who can tell? There is just something uncanny about it. Unfortunately I couldn't find the artist mentioned on the wallcoo website. By the way, what part of Scripture mentions cutesy squirrels and bunnies gathering round the crib?

  1. Just an FYI - If you continue on to the end of this set of pictures, you will see that it is depicting a children's Christmas pageant. THAT is why they are children! I think it is very cute and if a person knows the REAL story of Jesus' birth, it is in no way demeaning to me to have children retell or replay Jesus' birth. What a great way to make it meaningful for little ones. We can learn the not so pretty parts of the story as adults... Merry Christmas!
