If there’s someone who is happiest at Christmas, it is no other than the children who are excited to find out what Santa has in the bag for them. Each year that the Yuletide season hit the air, children think of a couple of things that they would like to have in celebration of the festive season. For how many years, Santa is used in receiving wishes for LEGO toys, Barbie dolls, gaming consoles, drones, and bicycles.
Whether kids ask for an expensive gift or a cheap one, the fact remains that no one can be happier than a kid whose wish came true!
Take the case of the charming little Sawyer for example. This Christmas, all Sawyer wanted to get was a bottle of his favorite condiment- ketchup!

And last Sunday, Sawyer’s aunt wanted to savor the initial reaction of the little boy as he open-up the Christmas gift he asked for. And so being a doting aunt, Morgan Deichert recorded Sawyer’s unwrapping of presents on a video.
