Santa Claus has brought an early Christmas gift to a 4-year-old Illinois boy after a previous visit to a mall Santa left him in tears.
In a video that went viral, little Michael DeCarlo breaks out in tears after a mall Santa refuses to add a Nerf gun to the boy's Christmas list.
"No guns...If your dad wants to get it for you, that’s fine. But I can’t bring it to you."
In reaction to hundreds of negative online comments, the Harlem Irving Plaza sent a different Santa to DeCarlo's home over the weekend, gifting him a brand new Nerf gun.
The boy's mother says, "We thought it was very kind and we’re grateful for their quick response to restore my son’s faith in Santa."
