Story of Grandma Who Texted Thanksgiving Dinner Invitation to Wrong Number Has the Best Ending Ever

How rare is it that we see a text sent to the wrong person evolve into a heartwarming scenario like this one---and with a Thanksgiving dinner invitation to boot! Jamal Hinton is one lucky dude, and you better believe as soon as he shared the original conversation to Twitter, plenty of other hungry teens were ready to beg for their invitations. Fortunately, the numbers have been disconnected!

The big and burly Pittsburgh Penguins took off the pads, hung up the skates, and created a knockout Home Alone parody just in time for the holiday season.

This couldn't come at a better time. We're still trying to deal with whatever sort of cigarette munching, crazy-eyed, mop-headed, sewage beast the once beloved, vaguely adorable Macaulay Carson Culkin evolved into.

Presumably, they all copied America because they thought our idea was so cool. Here are a few of the more famous festivals.

It's as if this story walked right off the set of a heartwarming Hallmark Holiday movie; this will bring on all the warm and fuzzy feels.

David Marks told ABC News,

I couldn't believe it. It was an absolute surprise, and the perfect Christmas gift.

For the last six years spent away from his home, Willie was provided for by a family out of Eureka, Nevada, almost 300 miles from his home in Las Vegas. With Willie back at home, the Marks tell the press that it feels like everything's right again. Isn't that a happy ending to a long and bumpy tale?
