This Santa melted hearts by chatting to a little girl in sign language

Actual tears.

IT’S COLD OUTSIDE, but this will warm your heart RIGHT up.

A video of a Santa signing to a little girl with hearing problems is going viral today for being so simply sweet.

The video sees the little girl’s mother explaining to the Santa that she can’t talk very well. He asks if she can sign, and her mother says she ‘does animals and things like that’.


Santa begins signing and makes the tot’s day.

The video was filmed in the Cleveland Centre Middlesbrough and posted to their Facebook page, resulting in tons of comments praising the thoughtful Santa.

I have 2 children both with different needs and this santa makes me beam with pride to be from the boro. He is a credit to the centre and to the name Santa. Totally amazing and fantastic to see him putting children at ease. Truly a miracle on 34th st santa in our own town x
How heartwarming is this…the true meaning of Christmas …beautiful. Thank you,Father Christmas x

The shopping centre told the Gazette that:

We believe the Cleveland Centre Santa is real and this truly shows the magic and spirit of Christmas, just like Miracle on 34th Street.
Santa will take his time with each and every child and will try and put a smile on their faces.
