Thoughtful Santa Learned Sign Language to Speak to a Young Deaf Girl

Pin It
As a kid, there is nothing cooler than being able to go sit on Santa's lap (how does he have time to visit EVERY mall?) and tell him what you want for Christmas.

Sadie Adams, a young deaf girl, has had to use an interpreter to communicate with Santa in years' past. She still got to tell him what she wanted, but it obviously wasn't as personal. This year was different, though.

Westminster Massachusetts police chief Salvatore Albert has been playing the town's Santa Claus for 15 years and this year, he learned how to sign all of the important Santa lines so he could communicate directly with Sadie.

As she approached him, he signed "Merry Christmas" and asked her what she wanted. "She literally stopped dead in her tracks and she just stared at him," her mom said.

"Santa knew my name because he knew how to sign it," the young girl told SBS."I told him what I wanted... a kitchen and a baby."
