Santa has tender conversation with little boy about autism


Santa Claus is a very important person to a lot of children. However, Santa is proving he can still bring joy to an adult’s heart too. According to a Dec. 6 Facebook post from Naomi Johnson from North Muskegon, Mich., the Santa at the RiverTown Crossings Mall took special attention to her son, Landon.

After Landon got off of Santa’s lap and began to walk away, he turned around and headed back toward Santa. “Landon had gone back to tell Santa that he’s autistic and was worried about being put on the naughty list because of it,” Johnson told

Santa made sure to let this precious boy know “he has been a very good boy being who he is,” Johnson included in her Facebook post. She couldn’t help but gush over the “amazing” experience on her Facebook post, adding, “We have met a lot of amazing people in our Autism journey, but this one made the top of the list.”

Work could have been this Santa’s top priority, but as you see in Johnson’s picture, Santa seems to truly care about this worried boy.

Landon wasn’t the only one who benefited from this kind Santa. He also touched the hearts of Landon’s mom, thousands of readers and me. See Johnson’s post in full below and let us know if this story has encouraged you during the holiday season.
