There’s a reason why we treasure the photos of our children’s visits to Santa: their delighted reactions sum up the magic and spirit of the season.


Nothing captures this better than the following photo collage from mum Amy Mondello, whose two-and-a-half-year-old son could hardly believe his eyes when he met the man himself!


Sharing her story with Love What Matters, Amy said: “I don’t think my two-and-a-half-year-old son Matthew believed us when we told him we were going to see Santa. As soon as we turned the corner at the front of the line, he screamed ‘ho ho’ and ran into his arms.”



“His face! Priceless,” she wrote, adding that eight-month-old Christian and Charlotte were pretty much ‘done’ as soon as they found out that Santa didn’t have any food!


Just look at the pure love and joy on little Matthew’s face – it really is the most wonderful time of the year!


Needless to say, the heart-warming post struck a chord with parents all over the world, who took to the comment section to share their own beautiful stories.



“My daughter is six and met Santa for the first time this year, and she was so happy. I love that she still believes in him,” wrote one mum.
