A video that has gone viral on the Internet shows one American soldier giving his family a wonderful Christmas present.
Patrick Conwell has been serving in Afghanistan for the last 9 months and wanted to do something very special for his family this Christmas. Patrick and his brother Matthew schemed together to surprise them by pretending that Matthew and his pregnant wife would be revealing the gender of their soon-to-be-born baby.
The couple set up a big box next to the Christmas tree and said that they’d open a box to reveal either a pink or blue balloon… but instead when they opened the box a green balloon floated out!
Seconds later, Patrick leapt from the box giving his family the best Christmas gift they could ask for.
