Bark the Herald Angels Sing! Dogs are dressed up as reindeer and characters from the Nativity in a viral Christmas social media trend

Festive dog lovers around the country are dressing up their beloved pets as reindeer and characters from the Nativity in the latest viral social media trend.

Many adorable pooches are pictured wearing reindeer headbands and some patient pets have even allowed their owners to put fluffy reindeer onesies on them.

While most people are accustomed to dressing up their children as angels for their school Nativity, some have put halos and wings on their dogs instead.

One patient dog was even dressed up as an innkeeper, sitting next to a sign reading ‘no room at the inn’.

Other pets have been dressed up as sheep and shepherds, with some co-starring alongside their fluffy toy lambs.
