Vote on what I should do with my nativity statuettes!

Hi everybody. So I have "inherited" some nativity statuettes from my deceased great-grandmother, which she painted. She, frankly, didn't do a great job of it, but still, she painted them. I have no desire to ever put these up in my house. I don't think my sister would want them, not because she's not Christian, but because they're ugly. (Mary's in orange? What?) I never see my great-grandmother's other descendants (my second cousins), and it would be too weird for me to track them down and offer these to them. They're packed up in my basement, of no use to me, but I feel guilty just giving them away. Should I hang on to them? Donate/freecycle them? I feel like a hoarder (yes, I've been watching Hoarders on A&E) with those statues all wrapped up in a box in my basement, but I seem unable to bring myself to get rid of them. So, give me your vote. Should I keep them for family's sake, or should I put them on freecycle?

Put them in you front yard holding signs saying REPENT !THE ATHEISTS WERE RIGHT!

Great idea, Dan, but they're only about 6 inches tall. I suppose I could make a giant spaghetti monster statue that could be holding them in His noodly appendages with a sign reminding people that they should keep the FSM in Chrifsmas, or else. But that would take more papier mache and effort than I have on hand.

I definitely vote to get rid of them. They're ugly, no one else in your family wants them, and you don't need them. Why keep them?

Take a few pictures of them if they are sentimental and ditch them.

Oh, I had an idea. paint huge gentils on them and put them in "compromising" positions, then take pictures of them.

Use electric tape to make bondage outfits and gimp masks. Put them on display.
The nice part about this is that the tape won't harm them, so if you ever decide to do anything else, it will come right off.

Freecycle. Someone out there might want them, even with an orange Mary.

I agree with Misty! That would be pretty hilarious!
