Deaf Students Talk to Santa

One student had never talked to Santa and she’s nine-years-old. Deaf students talk to Santa through sign language. According to the article:

Before he saw Santa use sign language at school, first-grader Michael Shoemaker never really understood his significance to the holiday.

Isn’t there more to the holiday than talking to Santa?

    When we lived in Dayton, the Deaf Kids Club would have a Signing Santa Christmas party.
    The first year we went to it, my wife Jennie and my daughter Keisha were interviewed by the local news station, which also was a sponsor.
    It was kinda cool, I think, to have a signing Santa available so that kids can partake of this popular tradition.
