Nothing beats the feeling of being reunited with loved ones over the holidays. It's the time for unwinding, spending time with loved ones, and making memories that will last a lifetime. There's always a supply of mince pies on hand, rooms are decked out in lights and tinsel, and warm blankets are at the ready. A festive house just beckons you to relax in comfort while surrounded by friends and family. When you're an elderly member of the family, you've undoubtedly seen and done it all, therefore it's unlikely anything will ever surprise you. But every now and again, something will catch you off guard. That was the case for 80-year-old Winnabow, North Carolina, grandmother Ollie.

She anticipated seeing the typical suspects at a family gathering. When she got to the top of the steps, however, someone unexpected was there to give her one of the biggest surprises of her life. The 80-year-old woman's adorable reaction to being shocked that one of her grandkids had come to see her was captured and published on YouTube on December 14, according to Storyful.

Arthea Lanee Jacobs recorded the video of her mother, Ollie, stopping in her tracks as she reacts to seeing her 37-year-old grandson Darryl. "Look at my baby!" Still standing in the stairway, Ollie yells. "Oh, Darryl, why do you do me like that?" she asks as she approaches her grandson for a hug. Ollie turned 80 in November, said Jacobs, and while they attempted to rejoin the family for her birthday celebration, they were unable to do so. "She has 7 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren," Jacobs said of her mother.  Darryl, on the other hand, felt terrible about missing the celebration, so he stated he wanted to surprise her as soon as possible. As you can see in the video, she was completely taken off guard," Jacobs continued. "She hadn't seen Darryl since October 2019."



Anyone may cry when they see parents reunite with their kids, but it's much more touching when it's a surprise visit. To surprise their father on his 60th birthday, Matt Collins and his sisters journeyed 3000 miles in another such reunion. Collins can be seen entering his home in a video posted on Tiktok, where his mother couldn't believe what she sees and Matt says, "Happy Birthday." Her mother says, "Oh my God, look at this, Matt!" That's when he tells his father, "I've got you a gift though." His parents come out to see their two daughters. The mother begins to cry, and the father enters silently and begins to cry. The father finally hugs his children and son. Collins captioned the video, saying,  "This is what happens when three siblings travel 3,000 miles to surprise our dad for his 60th birthday🙌 Safe to say it went well."

The comments thread is as adorable as the video. One user said, "That’s all parents want, a big hug and all their babies together again. Well done, y’all. The best gift you could have given." Another said, "All their Babies together under one roof." Another penned, "Are you single? I need to marry into a family like this 😭❤️." Some users described similar incidents, and some were concerned about the open house door. As one user put it,  ", "Wait, people just leave their doors unlocked all willy-nilly out there?" Another wrote, "My sister and I did this to my dad for his 80th. He answered the door in his tighty whiteys🥺🥺🥺 Surprise."
