Holy Holy Holy, Along With Many Gift Shops and Twice-Daily Crucifixions

Abby Zimet

Feeling Christmasy? What better place to celebrate the season than Orlando's Holy Land Experience,
a 15-acre theme park adorned with "HE IS RISEN" shrubs where you can
sing Christian karaoke in the Theater of Life, buy 1st-century gimcracks
in the Old Scroll Shop, get automated tours through the history of the
Bible every seven minutes in the Scriptorium, walk on water with Jesus,
share the Last Supper with Jesus, and, twice a day, watch a bloody,
whipped and shackled Jesus get dragged through the streets of old
Jerusalem, and crucified. Yes, on Christmas too.
