3-year-old girl mistakes stranger for Santa – His response proves Christmas magic is real

A little girl saw a man in a supermarket that resembled a spitting picture of Santa Claus. His response when she moved toward him reminds us what Christmas is all about.

Robert Riley was doing some Christmas shopping with his two little girls at the Walmart in Hurricane, West Virginia. One of his girls, 3-year-old Sophie Jo Riley, saw a man that, as grown-ups, lot of us wouldn’t have given much attention. In any case, for Sophie, he had an uncanny similarity to somebody extremely special to her.

“She was simply sneaking around the passageway, had her back against the toys,” her older sister Miya Lupashunski told WSAZ. “We were behind her, and she’d put her finger up to her lips and go ‘Shh! It’s Santa!’ ”

After some support from her father, Sophie went to talk with the “Santa”. It turns out his name is Roger Larck and in spite of the fact that he isn’t the “official” Santa, his actions throughout the following couple of minutes make a memory that will last forever for this young lady.

See below the lovely meeting between “Santa” and Sophie! Adorable!
