Preschoolers fight over baby Jesus during nativity pageant in East Tennessee

VIDEO Toddlers tangle over baby Jesus during Christmas pageant

A Facebook video shows two-year-old Teegan Benson, who played the role of the sheep in the nativity scene of First Baptist Church of White Pine's Christmas pageant, dancing with the Baby Jesus doll while the children's choir sang "Away in a Manger".

A little girl playing a sheep decided she wanted the baby Jesus for herself.

It had amassed more than 182,000 shares and more than 6 million views as of Thursday afternoon.

Benson said in her Facebook post, that has since gone viral, that she laughed until she cried.

Dressed as a sheep, she decides to pick up the Jesus doll from the manger, rocking it in her arms with a big smile facing the audience.

As for Teegan, her mom said perhaps she would have put the baby Jesus down, but "once she heard the crowd laughing, the more they laughed the more she strut her stuff". Teegan then took the doll back and the laughs continued. "We weren't supposed to touch the baby Jesus!' I told her we were sorry!" "[Mary] is a stickler for the rules".

Clearly, that's something her daughter understands very well already.
