(RNN) - A little girl playing a sheep in a living nativity scene decided she wanted to hug and dance with the Baby Jesus, prompting the girl playing Mary to do what any good mother would do. She swooped in, struggled with the sheep, got the Baby Jesus doll away from her and put him back in the manger.

When the sheep struck again, Mary would up putting her in a headlock.

The delightful video was posted on Facebook by Tana Benson - the sheep's mama. It has gotten over 5 million views.

Kudos to the children's choir singing "Away in the Manger" for not missing a note during the onstage struggle. They kept their composure better than the parents in the audience, who can be heard howling with laughter.

Who could blame them? It was definitely a Christmas pageant that will never be forgotten.

Take a minute and watch the video. It's a true Christmas treat.

    The holidays are meant for everyone to come together, but for one Murrells Inlet family, a large part of their family is missing.
