A McDonald's in Spring Hill, Tenn., has no qualms in declaring that Jesus is the reason for the season.

As more businesses are moving toward using generic greetings like "holidays," a photo of a McDonalds owned by Gina and Tony Wolf is going viral after being posted on Facebook.

The post has been shared more than 50,000 times.



Drove by and did a double-take. Growing up in the mitten, you would NEVER see this. Tennessee McDonald' made my day. "His name is Jesus".

FOX 17 in Nashville spoke with the owners of the McDonald's and they say they've been doing this for decades. "It's a family business which has been owned and operated by my family for 40 years," Gina Wolf told the station. "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."
