Heartwarming video captures Santa signing to little girl

The feel-good Christmas movie of the year is a viral YouTube clip. 

Over the weekend, three-year-old Mali from the UK went to the mall to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas.

When it was Mali's turn to sit on Santa's knee, her mother told the man her daughter had trouble speaking, but could understand sign language.

Like all good Santas do, he worked his Christmas magic in order to talk to the little girl in the language she understood. 

The beautiful moment was captured by onlookers at the Cleveland Centre in Middlesborough, England and posted online.

While there have been reports the little girl is hearing impaired, the video posted on YouTube confirms she is not deaf, but "struggles to communicate with speech and language."

"She has been attending a special school to help with her communication and this is were she learned sign language," the video caption states.

"Her reaction is priceless and touched all of us who witnessed it live. I was so pleased I could capture such a special moment and share it with the world."

Watch the touching moment in the video below.
