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 Tennessean reports that the store’s owners have decorated the windows for many years. The store’s owners Gina and Tony Wolfe released this statement.
“Although we respect all values and beliefs, our window displays during the Christmas season have become something of a local tradition. As independent business owners, for many years, we have had the windows at our restaurants painted with similar messages. This is a tradition that my father started 40 years ago. We are surprised and happy that our windows have garnered attention across the country and are proud to be a part of this community.”
