Hands down my favorite manger scene. They even invited Satan.
Looks like the Three Wise Men and all the most popular Christmas characters made it to the manger before the glowing-eyed demon from the depths of the earth rose up to devour them! AND HE IS NOT HAPPY! Oh, and it wasn’t a star that guided the TWM, it was a snowman, that must be where Frosty comes in.
Perhaps Santa, Frosty, The Little Drummer Boy and the Holy Family and attendants don’t actually see the demon glowing-eyed skull raised from the depths of Hell to eat them all alive and disappear back down into the soil from whence it came, leaving only a few scorch marks and melted snow.
If I were Santa I’d toss them all into that cute little sleigh and be off like the down of a thistle!
Think Hades wasn’t happy about giving up Persephone this year and he’s come for some more captives?
And when I was in Catholic school, I don’t remember hearing that Santa made it to the Nativity…or was he one of the wise men?
The little Drummer Boy is another story, though his costume is somewhat anachronistic.
And Frosty? Did they have television specials back then?
I guess it’s Christmas á la carte!
