On Christmas morning, former president Barack Obama posted a photo of his family celebrating Christmas. As you might expect, the Internet is getting all emotional about it.
In the photo, Barack, Michelle, Malia, and Sasha Obama are posing in front of a giant Christmas tree surrounded by a crew of young “elves” and plenty of ornately wrapped gifts.
“On behalf of the Obama family, Merry Christmas! We wish you joy and peace this holiday season,” Obama wrote in the caption.
By Tuesday, Obama’s tweet had received nearly 1.3 million likes and over a quarter of a million retweets. “All I ask for for Christmas is a president just like you,” wrote one Twitter user.
Here are a few of the jubilant responses:
On behalf of the Obama family, Merry Christmas! We wish you joy and peace this holiday season..
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from
We miss you
