One Long Island family got a special Christmas gift in the form of an unexpected reunion.

Taylor and Chris Soesman are identical twins serving in the Navy.

They told their mother they couldn’t come home for the holiday, but two days ago they surprised her at work.

The brothers from East Massapequa had been planning the surprise since October.

The Soesman’s hadn’t all seen each other since May of this year.

What a great way to celebrate Christmas.
