During this holiday season, despite the difficult year we have had, we will enjoy sharing our dearest family moments like never before. We will be on our knees thanking life for allowing us to at least keep our loved ones. And we will keep those memories forever etched in our hearts.
And in those celebrations, it is common to see the traditions that preserve the flavor of childhood in each place bloom. So is the manger , it’s a custom that a part of the people like to recreate what happened on Christmas Eve that year, in which the Child Jesus decided to be born in a portal among animals.
We can find mangers in many different places, placed to celebrate Christmas. However, sometimes we pass by without taking a close look at what’s inside each; but in this case, it’s impossible not to stop and see what this Christmas card has to say to us…
This particular nativity scene features a special guest sheltering from the outside world who may have treated him badly.
The scene is very moving, it must have been very emotional to see it live…
The residents of Cricuma, a town in Santa Catarin (Brazil), could not help but be surprised to see that someone joined their traditional nativity scene.
It was a baby German Shepherd . The little puppy, in the midst of his tenderness and innocence, was found sleeping peacefully, snuggled up next to baby Jesus. Definitely, without knowing it, he had chosen the best place, and together with that other little boy from Bethlehem, they staged the most tender scene that the inhabitants of the place had ever seen.
Unfortunately, the puppy was abandoned , something that especially in these days of so much desolation, crisis, poverty and disease, it is common to see, much more than we would like.
So the little stray was giving the manger a temporary use while he rested a bit. The adorable scene had a large audience, everyone who came close could not stop taking photos of the manger, especially for the sweet puppy that was sleeping peacefully.
The homeless puppy had no idea that his luck would change forever.
The story of this intruding puppy attracted so much in the place that the word spread quickly. To the point that what many wanted with all their might happened: one of the spectators decided to adopt the little one right there, and took him home.
Later it turned out that the photographs were actually taken a few years ago, but they have gone viral again on social networks… And why not? If it is such a heartwarming scene… What a joy to know that the defenseless puppy was adopted and that now he has a family with which to spend Christmas.
Share this tender story with your friends and acquaintances. And do not allow the hard moments of this year to steal your innocence, tenderness and the desire to dream. Let’s imitate this sweet puppy that only inspires us love.
