We all count the days to Christmas, right? Kids do it in anticipation of Santa's arrival, adults do it in panic about how many days they have left to prepare and shop for the holidays.

The other day I saw something at today.com that stopped me in my tracks and immediately had me reaching for the tissues.

A British videographer named Phil Beastall recently posted a video on Facebook that he created in 2014 about a man who counts down the days until Christmas for an entirely different reason. Watching it made me realize what really matters during the holidays, and made me feel even more blessed to have my parents to celebrate them with.
