Santa helps man propose to Christmas-loving girlfriend

“This Christmas will be extra special,” said Barry Clarke.

— -- This unsuspecting Santa visitor must have been on the nice list this year.

After learning that Kellett had secured a ticket to visit the beloved Santa at Arnotts department store in Dublin, Clarke said he knew time was of the essence.

Santa was happy to grant the couple’s Christmas wish to love each other forever.

“Thanks to Santa for being so professional with the engagement,” said Clarke. “We now have a video which we can show Cameron when he gets older.”

Clarke said they have no date set for the wedding yet, they are "just recovering from the social media frenzy."

Although Clarke and Kellett have been together for 10 years and 11 Christmases, he explained, "This Christmas will be extra special."
