Videos go viral so fast these days that we often don’t even have any names or hometowns or anything to attach to the stories they are telling us.
But I think that’s kind of a cool thing, actually.
Take for example this extremely heartwarming video footage of a father getting a Christmas gift to remember. The video, which is making the rounds all over the internet on this day after Christmas shows a guy opening a gift from his son (who is filming).
Without knowing the names of the characters or anything about them, except that we can see one’s face and that the other one is just a voice, we are treated to a brief one-act play of that captures the human spirit better than about 90% of what’s on the television anymore.
In the video, what the man on screen thinks he has received is a houndstooth hat (much like famed Alabama football coach Paul ‘Bear’Bryant used to wear).
But when his son asks him on camera, “What size is it?”…well, the gift reveals it’s real magic.
I won’t spoil it for you, it deserves to be seen for itself, if only to remind each and everyone of us that the magic of the holidays comes in all colors, shapes and ‘sizes’.
Hope your holiday had some magic of it’s own.
