France - Seems Christians are not the only ones who got to do a little gift sharing over the past few days. 

Christmas, celebrated as a reminder of the birth of Jesus Christ (the messiah- king) and re-enactment of the gift bearing performed on the day Jesus Christ was born took on a connected meaning at the La Fleche zoo in western France.

Today's photo of the day, taken by Jean-Francois Monier, displays another king sharing in the festivity. A white lion opens a package filled with chicken meat that had been wrapped as a Christmas gift.
