Did you know that Santa Claus sometimes talks with his hands?! Each year, I have heard more and more stories similar to the one below, and I love that it's a spreading trend!
If you're in the right place at the right time, you might notice Santa receiving the wish lists of children not through shy whispers from a child leaned in close but through excited, flying hands. Across the country, more and more signing Santas are appearing. The jolly elf, fluent in ASL, is delighting parents and children alike by allowing signing families to share their Christmas wishes with him directly.
Here are some local news stories that represent just a couple of he signing Santa experiences out there. I hope they warm your heart this cold winter day! I think the pictures and videos are the best part!
