A little boy got the surprise of his life when he walked into a Canadian fast food restaurant and saw who he thought was Santa Claus in line.
According to Mark Hurson, a customer who was in the store at the time, the little boy of around 4 or 5 saw the older bearded gentleman and “stopped and looked at him in awe.”
“The older gent looked down and smiled and asked him if he sent his letter into him yet,” Hurson wrote in a Facebook post.
“The boy said no and he would be doing it tonight.”
After reminding the boy to be nice to his mum and sister because he’d be watching, “Santa” bid farewell and said he was going back to the North Pole to finish the toys with the elves.
“Everyone in the restaurant was a bit teary eyed!” Hurson wrote. “There are some great people left in the world.”
