SPRING HILL, Tenn.— A McDonald’s in Tennessee is receiving a lot of attention on social media because of its Christmas window display.

The restaurant painted a Nativity scene on its windows, along with the words, “His name is Jesus” and “Rejoice,” WZTV reported.

The window display went viral after Amy Basel posted a photo of it on her Facebook page saying, “Drove by and did a double-take. Growing up in the mitten, you would NEVER see this. Tennessee McDonald’s…you made my day. ‘His name is Jesus.’”

The co-owner of the store, Gina Wolfe, and her husband own three other stores, WZTV reported. Wolfe says that it is a family business that her family has owned and operated for 40 years.

“My dad started this 40 years ago when he had a local art student paint it on his store. My husband and I have been owners for 28 years and we’ve done this or something similar during Christmas each year.”

Wolfe told WZTV that the community has “embraced” their Christmas-themed storefronts ever since the tradition started.

“We have so many people that tell us it really kicks off the season for them when they see it on our stores. We are so pleased people enjoy it.”

All stores have the Nativity scene on the front window this year. The post has been shared over 67,000 times.
