The Internet has dry spells. You can only watch so many videos of a cat riding a Roomba, right? But then you get beauties like Charlie Bit My Finger (viewed over 800 million times), Otters Holding Hands (viewed more than 20 million times), Raccoon With Cotton Candy (reminding us that life is fleeting) and more. In 2016, we have a contender for the Internet’s most wonderful footage, and this one features premature twins holding each other’s hand for dear life as they are cradled in the bosom of their father. Um, hold for joy:
Amazing!!! Needs to go viral!!! our preemie twins Kristiana and Kristian! Born at just 28 weeks and 1 day! Weighed in at under a kilo each! #preemietwins

It’s a simple video, but just adorable. These twins, named Kristiana and Kristian, never let go. They hold on to their “person,” like the Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo of premature twins.
That’s a really sweet thought. Eventually, they will need to let go, but right now, in these cold days of winter, it’s nice to watch new siblings holding on for one more day.
