Two years ago this visit to Santa went viral. Now see why the reunion is melting everyone’s heart.

Sometimes you just have to believe.

A deaf little girl’s magical moment with Santa has become a viral Christmas classic for all the right reasons.

A little girl named Mali was taken to the Cleveland Centre Mall in Middlesbrough, England to meet Santa, but it didn’t take long to notice that something was different.

The girl couldn’t communicate what she wanted for Christmas, and her mother could be heard telling Santa the reason why.

“Sorry, she can’t talk very well,” she said.

Santa appears concerned when mum tells him of her daughter’s condition.

When Santa asked if she knew sign language, mom informed him that she’s learning.

“Yeah, she does animals and things like that.”

That’s when Santa began to the tap Mali on her arm to get her attention.

Guilty until proven innocent? Is the rise in sexual allegations putting innocent men at risk?


When she turned to look at him, he started to communicate with his hands and made an instant connection with the beaming child.

The special moment was posted on Facebook in 2015, and has delighted all who’ve been fortunate enough to come across it ever since.

 “We believe the Cleveland Centre Santa is real and this truly shows the magic and spirit of Christmas, just like Miracle on 34th Street,” a mall spokesman told the Gazette.

“Santa wants to make sure every child who visits really does experience what this time of year is all about. Santa will take his time with each and every child and will try and put a smile on their faces.

“Santa has been coming to the Cleveland Centre for four years now and this has got to the most truly amazing few minutes we have experienced.”

The Cleveland Centre and Santa made sure Mali’s Christmas wishes came true and recorded a reunion between the two one week later.
