Little Boy Was Worried Santa Wouldn’t Be Able to Find New Chimney-Less Apartment. Brilliant Dad Goes Extra Mile to Assure Sleigh Finds Its Way


Eight-year-old son Hamza Silman was excited about Christmas, but worried that he might not get any presents this year. But he hadn’t been naughty; no, he was simply afraid Santa’s sleigh would never be able to find his new home.

That’s because Hamza and his family now live in an apartment in London’s East Village, and it doesn’t have a chimney–and chimneys, as we know, are very important to Santa’s journey on Christmas Eve.

But that’s when Hamza’s creative dad, Jonathan, 28, came up with a genius solution: Using a drone camera, he filmed a reindeer’s eye view of the path to their home and sent it to Santa. He even attached a certain red-nosed you-know-what to the front of the drone to lead the way.

“He believes Santa uses chimneys as a guiding point to find the good children,” the crafty father told the Daily Mirror about his son. “This broke my heart, so I decided to take matters into my own hands.”

We’re so glad he did. Check out his amazing video here.
