Have you taken your family’s Christmas pictures for this year? As part of the holiday’s season, it’s a family tradition to take pictures of the whole family with Santa. Only this time, there was an important part of the family missing, or so they thought.
With one of the sons deployed overseas, this family was resigned to spend the holidays with their hearts weighted because of the son’s absence to fulfill his patriotic duty. So during an otherwise uneventful family Christmas gathering, Santa Claus shows up to cheer up the family and take some pictures with them. Little did they know who this specific Santa really was.
