A surprise reunion at an Ascension Parish school became a viral video just ahead of Christmas.

A still image from the video captures the moment a mother was reunited with her daughter at Sorrento Primary School.

The video captured the moment a Sorrento Primary School student saw her mother, who just returned from serving the country.

The mother-daughter reunion began with the student walking through a hall toward a Christmas tree. The priceless moment was then caught on video as the girl's mom was waiting behind the tree, ready to give her a big hug.

"So sweet. This brought tears to my eyes. Just beautiful!" one commenter posted on the school's post.
