Touted on the company’s website as “the coolest Nativity set you’ll see all year,” the modern-day scene includes Joseph – rocking a man bun and a denim shirt – taking a selfie of his family as he kneels next to baby Jesus in his manger and Mary, who is holding a latte cup and striking a “Duck Face” pose. The roof of their little stable is equipped with solar panels.
