Now this is a sweet video, but it packs a powerful message for everyone.

Uploaded by ALONE, a charity which supports elderly people, the video features some of the oldest people the organisation works with as they talk about some of their most precious childhood Christmas memories.

ALONE wants to bring attention to the fact that so many elderly Irish people will have no company but their memories this Christmas. 

170,000 older people live alone in Ireland and they're especially vulnerable to becoming isolated. With Christmas being the loneliest time of year for so many, spare a thought for the elderly people in your life this festive season.
