And Now ... a Hipster Nativity Scene
In this scene, "Mary" is a Starbucks fan, apparently.   (Modern Nativity)

It's that time of year when stories about Nativity scenes begin making headlines, and in this case, it involves an oh-so-modern twist. It seems the website Modern Nativity is selling a "Hipster Nativity Set" for $129.99, and it's drawing some attention. Think "Joseph" taking a selfie with his family, "Mary" holding some coffee, plus Segways, Amazon boxes, etc. Also, "I don't know if it was intentional or not, but Mary looks like she's on some type of opiate as well," notes a post at Dangerous Minds. Adds another at Patheos: "I kind of want one just for the Wisemen on Segways." But a post at Twitchy wonders, "Do hipsters have to ruin CHRISTMAS too?" and rounds up some none-too-pleased tweets.
