Waiting in long lines can be quite tiring.
One very young boy became a victim of waiting-induced sleepiness and fell asleep before he got to meet Santa Claus at a mall in Evansville, Indiana.
But it all worked out – and quite splendidly, at that.
The baby’s father, 40-year-old Donnie Walters, shared pictures on Facebook of his son sleeping on a big green chair and snuggled up with Santa, who held a copy of “The Night Before Christmas” under his arm.
"After falling asleep in line waiting, Santa asked us not to wake him and the outcome was the cutest thing I've ever seen," he wrote from Donnie's Daddy Daycare.
The photos, posted on Thursday, had racked up over 400,000 likes by Monday afternoon.
