A Hilarious Update to the Classic Nativity Scene Featuring Hipsters on Segways and Cell Phones


Modern Nativity, a San Diego event retailer, has given the classic nativity scene a fresh new update for 2016. The new scene features sharp but casually dressed hipsters who visit a selfie-taking couple and newborn, bearing gifts of organic, free-range animals and Amazon boxes while on their cell phones and Segway Personal Transporters.

A lot has changed in the last 2,000 years. For starters, I don’t even think they had iPhones back then, which explains why Joseph didn’t add the birth of Jesus to his Snapchat story. If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you. …While a traditional nativity set may not sound like the most original decoration, the Hipster Nativity Set gives the first Christmas an Instagram-worthy makeover that is guaranteed to rake in all the likes.
