VIDEO: Irish mammy gets the shock of her life when she looks under her Christmas tree

Tony Cuddihy

She was not expecting this.

JOE reader Harry McCann sent us in this clip of his mother Diann’s reaction when she discovered that the ‘present’ lying wrapped under her Christmas tree was, in fact, her son Alex who had been in Australia for over a year.

Alex had told his mam that he’d be going to Hawaii for Christmas, but instead he flew home to Ireland.

Her reaction when he pops out of the wrapping is pure Irish mammy gold.

We straight up love these ‘coming home for Christmas’ videos.
