This video of a group of Swedish children putting a smile on a pensioner’s face shows how easy it is to spread joy.
Filmed at a Stockholm train station, the clip shows an elderly man alone on the platform, waiting for his train, when a group of children run up to him.
“What’s your name?” asks a young boy. He replies ‘Erling’. That’s when the magic begins.
The kids begin to adorably belt out the lyrics to a well-known Swedish song, a traditional tune usually sung in nursery schools to teach children the names of their classmates.
“Erling is here and Edith is here. It’s so fun that Philip is here. In our happy gang, Nova is here today. Oh, it’s fun, so fun,” they sing as the stunned pensioner looks on.
At the end they hug him and run off, leaving the man with a huge smile on his face.
