A Conversation Between Santa and a Girl With Hearing Difficulties Has Gone ViralA. Stout
Differences in language can undoubtedly create an invisible barrier between human beings.
So this three-year-old girl with hearing difficulties must have been excited when the Santa from Middleborough’s Cleveland Centre started communicating with her in a way she could understand: sign language.
The girl, Mali Williams-Cody, met Kris Kringle, who was dressed as Santa, on November 5.
Mali’s mother explained that she couldn’t talk well. Kringle asked if sign language was a possible avenue for a chat. When Mom replied that it was, Santa launched into a heartwarming conversation with Mali, who requested a scooter for Christmas.
An onlooker who caught the touching moment on video uploaded it to YouTube a month later. Since then, it’s gotten over 2.7 million views. Check out the clip to see why!
