One such little girl was overjoyed when she came across ”Santa Claus” while shopping with her family. An old video of their sweet interaction has resurfaced on social media, delighting internet users.
The clip starts with the little girl staring at the elderly man, who has a white beard and is wearing a red shirt. Because of his appearance, the little one named couldn’t stop looking at him as she was convinced he was Santa himself. The man then kneels down and asks her who she thinks he is.
When she replies, he is heard saying: “Santa? I’ve been called a lot worse.” The old man then sweetly plays along and then asks the girl if she’s been a good girl, and if she’s getting ready for Christmas. She then proudly shows him her hands to which he says, “Wow, haven’t you got pretty nails.” When she tells him she’s going to leave out some cookies for him, he asks: “Can I eat them all?” However, she adds that he has to share the cookies with Rudolph the reindeer and that Santa himself could only have one cookie. The conversation ends with Santa wishing the girl a Merry Christmas.
