Santa Is Going Viral for an Uplifting Response to Girl With Hearing Problems

A mall Santa at Middlesbrough's Cleveland Centre in the U.K. is gaining a lot of attention for using sign language with a little girl who has hearing problems, a sweet encounter that many have likened to an identical scene in the 1990s Christmas movie, "Miracle on 34th Street."

At the beginning of the clip, a female toddler hops on Santa's lap with a big smile on her face. When her mother explains that she cannot talk very well, Santa asks if the child knows how to use sign language. Once he learns she "does animals and things like that," Santa starts signing with her in an adorable moment of understanding and compassion.

Another Santa recently made news for going the extra mile for a child with special needs. At a Caring Santa event, which is organized for kids with special needs and autism, one Santa got down on the ground to interact with a boy with autism named Brayden Deely. Brayden didn't feel comfortable sitting on Santa's lap and his mother told local North Carolina news station WCNC that her family "would not have Santa pictures" this holiday season had it not been for this Santa's incredible approach.

"Social situations get very difficult for him so having the ability for us to come in and set up an appointment and give him an experience of a typical child is huge for him and huge for us," Dan Deely, Brayden's father, told WCNC.

Looks like at least two Santas will be on the Nice List this year.
