If you are in need of some much-needed escapism today, then this viral Twitter video will cheer you right up.

We've all had a tumultuous year few weeks of it, haven't we? Social media has its good and bad points, but what we can always rely on it for is a video that'll make us howl with laughter. And the video that we've found today involves a very early accidental nativity scene unfolding in a house in Manchester.

As you can see below, video owner Jenny Jones saw the scene unfolding in her kitchen. And instead of trying to herd the four goats, Shetland pony, and three donkeys to the outside, she decided to whip out her phone and record the anarchy unfolding before her.

Here is the scene, complete with uncontrollable laughter from the videographer which makes it all that more feel-good.

The Manc got a hold of Jenny, the owner of the Twitter video in question, and they shared the video with the caption from her saying: "Should always believe a 5-year-old when he tells you 4 times alllll the animals are in the house".

Yes, your 5-year-old might say come out with some crazy stuff at times, but this one was actually true. Here's the nativity scene for you again.

"Should always believe a 5-year-old when he tells you 4 times alllll the animals are in the house" Wait for the donkeys... 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/Q7ptGDyvzG
