Mother Thanks NJ Santa for Showing Her Adult Son With Autism 'True Christmas Spirit'

"Thank you for allowing us to witness the true Christmas spirit," she said.

— -- A Santa for a garden center in New Jersey is getting a lot of love on social media for his show of kindness and the "true Christmas spirit" to a man with autism.

Casey Hackett, 22, was captured on video this past Saturday sitting on Santa's lap and chatting with Mr. Claus about everything from reindeer to dinosaurs to, of course, what he wanted for Christmas.

The young man's mother, Meria Hackett, posted the video with thank-you note to the Santa on Facebook, where it has received over 200,000 views and dozens of positive comments as of today.
