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

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

WZTV reported that Amy Basel originally posted the photo to Facebook.

In her post she wrote:

“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.'”

WZTV spoke with the co-owner of the store, Gina Wolfe, who said she and her husband own three other stores.

“It’s a family business which has been owned and operated by my family for 40 years,” Wolfe told WZTV. “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. I guess with social media, it’s taken off.”

She 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.
