OHIO---For the second year in a row, a Cincinnati couple has constructed a zombie-themed Nativity scene against the objections of local zoning officials and religious groups. Shingle by shingle, Jasen and Amanda Dixon built the Nativity display in their front yard, documenting the process on their Facebook page. The biblical scene comes complete with Mary, Joseph, undead wise men and a razor-toothed baby Jesus in a manger. A spooky version of “Silent Night” blares in the background. At night, rainbow-colored lights showcase the scene. [link]
