Amidst all the political correctness that Christians often lament during Christmastime, one fast food restaurant has done something surprising.


According to Charisma News, a McDonald’s restaurant in Tennessee has chosen to display a picture of the nativity scene on its front windows. 


“His name is Jesus,” is painted on the first window, then there is a cow, the virgin Mary, baby Jesus, a shepherd and a sheep, and lastly, the word “Rejoice.”


A photo of the painted nativity has gone viral, and now has more than 133,019 likes, 82,484 shares, and almost 7,000 comments.


Michigan-native Amy Basel, who shared the photo, stated, “Drove by and did a double-take. Growing up in the mitten, you would NEVER see this. Tennessee McDonald' made my day.”


Comments on the post of the photo included “Praise God!” and “Happy birthday, Jesus!”
