What Santa Said To This Little Boy Has Been Melting Hearts Across The Internet

Most kids (and, hey, maybe some adults) believe that if they’re on Santa Claus’ “Nice” list, they’ll get everything they want for Christmas. If they make it to his “Naughty” list, legend has it that they’ll get a lump of coal instead. No one, least of all an excited kid, wants a lump of coal, so most children hope to end up on his good side.

This boy was worried Santa would put him on the “Naughty” list for one heartbreaking reason: he has autism.

…But seriously, is this really Santa?

Now that’s what Santa is all about and that’s how the spirit of Christmas should be spread — through love and good cheer! Kudos to that awesome Santa. Hopefully that little boy gets everything his heart desires this Christmas.
