Michael Lohan's Nativity Scene
Michael Lohan as Joseph
Lindsay Lohan's dad, Michael, was getting into the holiday spirit on Tuesday night in Manhattan.
The recently paroled papa put in an appearance as Joseph in a live nativity scene (in a small park near Times Square) to help recognize firefighters who died on 9/11.
"It was heartwarming, but a cold night," Lohan told PEOPLE. "I was with some nice people." He was replaced in the manger after 6 p.m., but the festive scene continued, including a chorus of men and women from Project Dance singing traditional Christmas carols and three fake, life-sized sheep, as well as a Mary and baby Jesus.
