LANCASTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — There's just one gift money can't buy and put under the tree for the holiday-- spending time with loved ones. One St. Mary's High School student got that special gift early when her sister, who is serving in the military, walked into the school's gymnasium and surprised her.

School officials happened to be in the gymnasium at the right moment when the emotional reunion happened. They posted the moment on both the school's Twitter and Facebook page.

You can see Emily Pastwik, a freshman at St. Mary's High School and Abby hugging as they reunite. Abby is currently serving in the military and came home for the holidays, a happy homecoming, indeed.
