Man Breaks Down After Getting Ticket To See Mom For First Time In 8 Years

All. The. Tears.

A dad's reaction to his family's Christmas gift might send you bawling along with him. 

Twitter user Anthony Morse who uses the handle ‏@RichHomie_Twan3 recently shared a video of his father opening up his Christmas present. The social media user explained that his father hadn't seen his mother in eight years and that she "she doesn't have much time left" so the family surprised him with plane tickets to go see her. 

Needless to say, the thoughtful gift left Morse's father very emotional. 

"What the hell did you do?" the dad says as he takes a closer look at the present, then proceeds to tear up. "Oh my God." 

The post, which was shared on Christmas, has already received more than 96,000 retweets as of Monday afternoon from people moved by the reaction. 

The father's good mood seems to have continued on throughout the day, as Morse later tweeted that his father was "whistling, making food all morning." 

Now if that doesn't put you in the holiday spirit, we don't know what will.
