Kids often remember birthday surprises for a lifetime, as they hold them very close to their hearts. Whether it's a surprise party with friends or a wonderful gift, such moments become etched in their memories for a long time. Caleb, a young boy, was in for a big surprise from his mother, who worked as a flight attendant. The heartwarming moment when she told him the surprise has been shared by @southwestair on TikTok, and the video has a million views so far.

What made the surprise even more special was how the whole plane contributed to the surprise. The caption of the post reads, "Caleb thought he was going to California for his birthday, but his mom had a big surprise for him that the whole plane helped reveal." In the video, we get to see the boy standing next to his mother on the plane. She says, "Caleb thinks he's going to California for his birthday. If I can get you all on the count of three to tell Caleb what state he's actually going to today."

His mother begins to count down as Caleb looks at her eagerly. The entire plan exclaims, "Hawaii!" and Caleb could not have been happier. The woman wishes her son a happy birthday and he gives her a hug. The boy runs back to his seat and hilariously asks the person recording, "Why didn't you tell me?" and also gets to take a photo with the entire crew. People on the platform loved the video and chimed in with their thoughts in the comments section.

Everybody loves a birthday surprise. Some time back, a video posted by @classicfm on TikTok showcased an orchestra surprising their conductor on his birthday. They start off playing Beethoven's "Eroica" and switch to "Happy Birthday" for him and it's probably one of the sweetest renditions you will hear. Sir Roger Norrington, the conductor, is unable to hold back his tears upon witnessing this wholesome surprise.

The man looks around at all of his musicians and the video concludes with the caption, "What could be better on your birthday than a surprise gift of music?" The orchestra in the video is Germany's SWR Symphony Orchestra, and the video has amassed more than 1.9 million views on the site. People shared their thoughts about the surprise in the comments section. @leannelouise10 said, "Crazy talented. I've never been in an orchestra who can sync like that without a conductor."

@jaclynmichelle83 commented, "I love how he is watching them like it is his first time hearing an orchestra!!! BRAVO!!!" Another individual, @jbchibinski, highlighted, "It's so hard to play without a conductor. I don't know if people appreciate this enough." @m_fly expressed, "That has to be the most advanced version of Happy Birthday I've ever heard."
