Ho ho ho! It’s that time of the year again when children wait anxiously for Santa Claus to pop by their house to deliver toys under the Christmas tree. One cute little girl, however, is already over the whole Santa Claus “myth” and thinks Santa is actually “breaking into people’s house”!
Santa Claus, or Saint Nicholas, urged kids “not to cry” in the all-time favorite Christmas song “Santa Claus is coming to town.” As the famous song goes, “You better watch out, you better not cry. Better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town.” For 3-year-old Mila Stauffer—probably one of the most skeptical tots in the world—Santa’s standard for his “nice” list is way too high!
“Better not shout? Better not cry? This guy standards… way too high!” Mila said in a hilarious video that has gone viral.
The portly, jolly, white-bearded old man from the North Pole is said to only bring gifts to homes of the well-behaved kids. But again, Mila is doubtful. “Oh and… who do I trust to buy me the latest toys? An old man living in the North Pole?” she ranted.
The song continues, “He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good. So be good for goodness sake.”
Well, the little Mila finds that creepy! “He knows when I’m sleeping? He knows when I’m awake? First off… this guy has no life,” said the little girl, with a serious look on her face.
Legend has it that Santa, wearing a red suit with white fur, black leather belt and boots, carries a big bag of gifts, and slip downs the chimney to deliver gifts the night before Christmas. Mila doesn’t buy into that myth, though. “He breaks into your house at night!” she innocently exclaimed.
Well, Mila was supposed to meet Santa at the mall when she pointed out these funny opinions about Santa. But, judging from her speech, she didn’t seem too excited about meeting Santa. “What’s even the deal with Santa Claus?” she said.
However, apparently, like anybody else, the little girl still wishes to receive presents under the Christmas tree, so, she ended by sweetly saying, “Santa if you are watching… no offense!”
The viral video has garnered over 1,800 comments.
One user, Christal Zeigler, claimed to know the girl and wrote, “I got to meet this little girl and her sisters, she is the sweetest thing and I knew it was her because I recognized her voice and comedic timing. She was precious and her older sister was taking care of her and loving on her. She doesn’t even know we know about these videos, she is very innocent and sweet. She says the things so many of us are thinking and her comedic timing is so on point. The reason she delivers the lines so well is she doesn’t know why they are funny. I would say her older sister is quite a writer, and if this little one didn’t want to make these videos anymore that would probably be fine. She has brought me a lot of joy, and I think this only the beginning of what we will see from her in the future.”
While another wrote, “I don’t care if her words are scripted. You cannot script her personality and charm. That’s all HER!!”
Well, we won’t conclude that this kindly saint, who is loved by countless children and adults all over the world for the joy he spreads, is fake or real—instead, let the magic of Christmas unfold to bring more love, hope, happiness, and compassion to your lives. On a lighter note, don’t forget to stay good… don’t think if little Mila said Santa’s standards are too high, we can act a bit naughty. Who knows, we might end up waiting one whole year just because of this—Christmas is not far away, right?! Merry Christmas!
