6-year-old Landon is a young boy that has autism. Landon and his family were visiting Santa at the RiverTown Crossings Mall when Landon decided to ask Santa a big question.
After taking a family photo with his family and handing Santa his Christmas list, he ran back up to Santa to ask him the question that’s been on his mind:
“Will my autism put me on the naughty list?”



He was worried his autism would put him on the naughty list and decided to tell Santa that his condition made it seem like he was naughty at times.

Santa reassured Landon he was not on the naughty list and that, “You know I love you and the reindeer love you and it’s OK. You’re a good boy. You’re a good boy, you know?”


Santa also tells him 6 words he really needed to hear, “It is OK to be you!”

Landon was thankful to hear these words and left happy knowing he was not getting coal this year.
