Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

A video of a Syrian family experiencing flurries and going tobogganing for the first time is capturing the hearts of Internet users everywhere.

The YouTube clip shows Syrian refugee Amal Alkhalaf’s three children – Ansam, 13, Ibrahim, 10, and Dalya, 9 – giggling as they fly down Armour Hill in Peterborough, Ontario.

The caption on the video reads: “Snow is a new experience, but fun in any language looks the same.”
