We’re calling it: this Dad won Christmas 2018.
When his daughter Vaughan was scheduled to work as a flight attendant on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Hal was determined to spend the holidays with her. She’d never had a Christmas without her parents and he wasn’t about to let that change this year.
Fellow passenger Mike Levy was amazed by the story, and shared it in a post on Facebook.
It was the first time Hal flew on one of his daughter’s flight because a few months after she started working as a flight attendant, he broke his neck. Doctors said he might never walk again. But after months of physical therapy, Hal was mobile and strong enough to be able to travel with his daughter.
“I’d just never been without my parents on Christmas, so my mom took one for the team and stayed home with all of the pets so he could take his first trip since the accident with me,” Vaughan said in an interview.
Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SuperDad. If anyone earned the title, it’s this guy.
