10 Hilarious (or embarrassing) Nativity Sets


Usually around this time of year, we start to see what makes Christmastime so special. The lights go up. The tree is trimmed. And the Christmas crèches are unpacked and given pride of place in the home.

Sometimes people may get a little carried away with their nativity sets. Others don’t seem to care. Still others place so much detail in their Christmas scenes that most of their friends wonder where they got the time to get so elaborate.

That being said, let’s look at some of the worst/best nativity sets. I’ll let you decide.

Let’s Go In Ascending Order of Epic-ness:

10. This one. There are no words. Or forms for that matter. (a philosophy pun)


9. “Two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.” Yep, that pretty much sums it up.


8. This…


7. And this excellent interpretive piece of Salvation history



By the way, I had no idea T-rex was at the birth of Christ. These were probably made by young earth creationists. Or maybe Bill & Ted brought Rex with them in their phone booth time machine. Whoa. Excellent! [*air guitar riff, a la Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It is Christmas, you know.*]

6. Look at all the mooses… or is it moosen?…meese in the stable. One is even holding a lamb. Awwww.


5. Jesus is truly the Son of Dog. I mean God. Silly me. I got my rettels dackwarbs. Whoops. Did it again. Woof.


#4. ‘Owl’ show you Wisdom incarnate with this nativity set.


3. Okay, this is pretty creative even if you prefer Pepsi.


2. As Catholics, we love feast days. And the Nativity of our Lord is one such epic feast. I present, “A feast made for kings.”


And #1: Because bacon, that’s why.

“And the Word became Flesh.” “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, you have no life within you.” Amen, Jesus. Amen.


Regardless of what your nativity set looks like, I want to wish you and your family a very happy and joyous Advent and Christmas Season!

Christ is Born!

Glory to God in the Highest and on earth peace to people of goodwill!
