Near my office is a service station that goes all out with decorating for holidays, and it’s all inflatables.  For Halloween it was surrounded by animated ghosts, spiders and black cats.  Come Thanksgiving, it was pilgrims and turkeys waving at passing motorists.  Now for Christmas they have outdone themselves.  Every inch of ground around their parking lot is filled with inflated Santas on motorcycles, elves on trains, and teddy bears and Tigger and anything else they could cram in, all moving or waving somehow.

But even considering all of that, this one made me do a double take:

Noah's Ark xmas inflatable

Yes, a Christmas Noah’s Ark.  Really.  Those middle doors open and close, and the lions pop in and out.  Because nothing brightens your holidays like a reminder that you are following a god who once killed everything on the planet, except for an arbitrarily selected few.

“Joy to the World and Drown all the Babies!”

No need to add to this, QWB gets the point across quite well.

Great post and to the point. When ever I’m in a department store and walk past the nursery section, no matter how many times I see this, I’m always gobsmacked that they have Noah’s Ark nursery themes. According to this site, it is consistently one of our most popular nursery themes. In fact, it mentions that the Noah’s Ark theme is the best themes and makes the perfect backdrop for story telling. o.O

Now it’s infiltrated the holidays. UFB

I was given a Noah’s Ark photo frame when I had my daughter. I didn’t consider myself an atheist yet, but I remember being highly bothered thinking about all the babies that supposedly died in the flood. The pastel colored giraffes looked happy though.

Also, you almost made me spit my tea with the “Joy to the World and drown all the babies” line. :)
