“It’s OK to be you.”
Those five words may seem extraordinarily simple, but for one Michigan boy and his family, that short phrase -- uttered by an “amazing” Santa Claus -- was a profound Christmas gift.
Last Friday, 6-year-old Landon Johnson went to the RiverTown Crossings Mall in Grandville with his family. While there, the boy and his cousins took turns chatting with Santa, sharing their Christmas desires with the jolly old elf.
After telling the man in red he wanted a Wii, a toy dinosaur and a remote control car, Landon hopped off Santa’s lap to rejoin his family. But a few moments later, he raced back to Santa’s side: he’d forgotten to tell him something important.
“He wanted to tell [Santa] that he has autism,” Landon’s mom, Naomi Johnson, said in a moving Facebook post about the encounter this week. “He was flapping his hands, all excited to let Santa know.”
Specifically, Landon shared his worry with Santa that his autism would land him on the “naughty list.”
His mom explained to WOOD-TV this week that Landon is often told he’s “naughty” by people who mistake his autism with bad behavior.

There was another one where a Santa signed to a deaf girl. Her face just lit up.
Made me smile.

Are you sure, as you have nearly made up my mind what to get you for christmas?

You have one hour to find this video clip or else you will end up having this the below present for Christmas and the deaf boy video with santa does not count.

Not only a blonde wig, but a perm at that as your present
