Good News After Bad Santa Tries to Ruin Little Boy’s Christmas
In case you missed the story yesterday, here’s what had happened:
One little boy was visiting Santa at a department store and he seemed nervous about telling Santa what he wanted for Christmas. Finally, the little boy mustered up the courage to tell Santa that he wanted a Nerf gun for Christmas, to which the Santa rejected his request.
“No. No guns,” Santa replied. The mother of the boy then clarified that it was a Nerf gun.
“Nope, not even a Nerf Gun,” the a-hole Santa replies. “Nope. If your dad wants to get it for you that’s fine, but I can’t bring it to you.” This definitely isn’t a statement that Santa should have even been making in the first place because he doesn’t even know if the boy’s father is even in his life.
“What else would you like? There’s lots of other toys, there’s Legos, there’s bicycles, there’s cars and trucks,” the Santa asks. “What do you think?”
Take a look at the video below and you’ll see what I mean.

Well, there was some good that came out of this now-viral video.
First of all, that mall Santa was fired from where he was working so that is great news.
Secondly, the mother said that there have been a lot of people working to make this right for her son. Here’s what she said on Facebook,
“I’m editing to say, I want to turn this situation into something magical for boys and girls who may be wishing for toys, especially nerf guns, and won’t be getting them. If you would like to send us a nerf gun or any other toy, I will give you an address to send them to and we will pass them out to kids that aren’t as fortunate. It will be a great lesson for him to learn too, some of Michael’s Christmas magic was stolen from him today so if we can pass some along and make another child’s Christmas brighter we would love to do it! I will work on finding a place to donate, and if anyone has suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
Thank you to EVERYONE who has offered to send Michael a nerf gun and who has sent one already. Your gift will restore some of the magic that that awful Santa stole. With that being said, he has enough magic coming and if you are still feeling generous please send a toy to Toys For Tots or another charity of your choice for a child who really needs some magic this season.
Also, I’d like to add that Harlem Irving Plaza has reached out to me to make it right. We really appreciate their quick response and kindness.
Merry Christmas everyone!
This is certainly good news and hopefully, the little boy realizes that this Santa was just some sad old man.
