It's not every day you see a parrot or a pig in church, but Sunday was an exception. Hundreds of animals and their owners turned out to celebrate New York City's ninth annual Blessing of the Animals at Christ Church on the Upper East Side. In addition to household pets, the Humane Society showed off adoptable animals. NYPD horses and canines received a special blessing. The Long Island Roosevelt High School Choir performed holiday carols during the celebration.
