Tana Benson, mother of Teegan, the girl who played the sheep, captured the fight on film and posted it on Facebook where it first went viral.

"These kids both love our church, love being here and both have a passion for Jesus, and so I think the message that we want to get across is He is the reason for Christmas", Benson told KHOU. "Laughed so hard I cried!" she wrote.

A two-year-old dressed as a sheep made a decision to snatch the baby Jesus doll and carry it to the other side of the little stage.

She and the sheep struggled for a brief moment, before Mary was able to get the doll back in the manger. "[Mary] is a stickler for the rules. This is insane.' So then just the way I guess it just kind of went viral, as they say, it's been overwhelming for sure". "I'm really glad that a video like this can bring some light into the season", she said.
