NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - A Tennessee girl is getting national attention for her action during a Christmas program at church.

Tana Benson of Dandridge, Tennessee, was recording her daughter during the manger scene of a Christmas performance. Dressed as a sheep, her little one couldn't resist picking up and cuddling the doll representing baby Jesus.

Well, the little girl playing mother Mary saw no choice but to rectify the situation. The result was one for the ages!

Benson posted the video on Facebook, saying, "My little sheep took the baby Jesus, breaking all the rules leaving poor little Mary no choice but to take action! Momma to the rescue tried her best to protect her baby at all costs. Definitely a program I will remember. LOVE these kiddos and my church family! Laughed so hard I cried!"

The video has been viewed more than 5 million times and shared over 153,000 times.
