With Christmas just around the corner, there’s no better time to indulge in feelings of celebration and merriment. Of course, it’s a simple thing to get swept away with the bright lights and gift-buying.
But that’s not what Christmas is about, not really. One woman who recognizes this – and is actively trying to enlighten others – is Amy Basel.
Amy’s aware of how people have become caught up in the commercial aspect of Christmas, and forgotten about what this most cherished of holiday seasons is all about. Which is why when she saw a certain display in a McDonald’s window, she had no choice but to stop her car. Having observed what the employees had done, she felt it her duty …
With the birth of social media, and an ever-evolving society that seems intent on forcing religion to the fringes, many children these days don’t understand the true meaning of Christmas.
They know that Santa comes down the chimney with presents, but do they know that Jesus died for our sins?
Fortunately, not everyone so readily dispenses of the fulfilling joy to be had by embracing Christmas in its truest form. Amy Basel noticed one McDonald’s willingness to proudly display the nativity scene on their windows, and was so taken aback that she simply had to post to Facebook.
“Drove by and did a double-take. Growing up in The Mitten, you would NEVER see this. Tennessee McDonald’s… You made my day,” she wrote.
‘His name is Jesus.'”
It should come as no surprise that Amy’s post was well received online. In no time at all, it garnered 82,000 shares and almost 136,000 likes on Facebook.
We’d like to give a shout out to this McDonalds for having the guts to do this!
