Earlier this week, Twitter user @ayenalambat posted a photo set of her younger brother, Aaron, who had a Stranger Things-themed birthday party which included a cake decorated with the Netflix show's logo, lots of Christmas lights strung around the house and on the cake (a reference to the way Will communicated with his mother in the first season), and Stranger Things-themed refreshments, such as "Demogorgon Blood," which looks like the best fruit punch around. Aaron looked like he was really into the vibe as well, striking a pose similar to Eleven's, complete with a thousand-yard-stare.
But unfortunately, there was some not so great news: Aaron's sister revealed that nobody came to the party. She wrote, "my brother invited 8 of his classmates for his stranger things themed bday party & none of their punk selves showed up." There was a swift and strong reaction to this reveal, with lots of Twitter users commenting that they want to come through for Aaron's birthday next year and friends on Twitter are there to support him. The tweet also caught the attention of none other than Millie herself.
"What!!!!," Millie wrote in a quote retweet of the original post. "Oh well. You can let them all know that everyone on behalf on [sic] Stranger [T]hings would’ve come! I think your [sic] awesome and next year I would like an invite...Please? 😘😘😘." Lots of people on Twitter got right into their feelings over this truly touching moment, with many posting emotional memes and crying emojis, calling Millie a queen for being so kind to Aaron, and, as one fan aptly remarked: "You're the best idol anyone could ever ask for!"
And Millie's not the only one that wants in next year. Castmate Gaten Matarazzo responded to Millie's tweet and wrote, "Count me in too! I’ll bring the chocolate pudding 🎂🎉🎈."
Millie and Gaten's comforting gesture follows in the footsteps of, David Harbour, another Stranger Things castmate who is similarly inclined to showing love and support to fans of the show. In January, David posted photos on Twitter of himself and high school senior Damaris Fregoso posing for fun senior photos. The photos were taken after Damaris asked David how many retweets it would take to make those senior photos happen to which he replied, "25k," adding the special condition, "and I get to wear the school sweatshirt and hold a trombone."
