What better way to end the Christmas Day than this awe-inspiring story of an adorable 7-year-old girl named Claire Koch.
Parents are always the proudest to witness every milestone in a child’s life but it’s even more special for parents Lori and Tom from Clearwater, Florida.
Their daughter Claire unintentionally outshined other kids when she adorably signed her Kindergarten Holiday concert. Claire is very familiar with American Sign Language being her first language and she uses it communicate to her deaf parents. She did quite amazing in this viral video taken in 2013 which made her an internet sensation.
“I, myself, haven’t been able to stop watching the video!” Lori told BuzzFeed.
Lori and Tom were seated in the front row with an interpreter ready but Claire came fully prepared not only for her part in the performance but in making sure that her parents felt included in that significant day. She enthusiastically sings complete with signing and animated facial expressions for her two special guests. Aside from being a natural performer, her sweet and funny ways moved everyone. Her parents couldn’t be more proud of her either!
Watch the adorable video below:

Real-life Santa Claus Travels Across the Globe to Spread Love Through Toys
She’s putting a smile on the faces of hundreds of children all over the world, one toy at a time.
40-year old Rina Fernandez, a resident of Van Nuys, California and a native of Venezuela, has been spreading the Christmas love to children since 1996. Born to a poor family in Venezuela, Rina only received toys once or twice a year. "Looking back on it now, the toys weren't very nice at all, but back then, I thought they were the most amazing things ever," she recalls.
Despite being poor themselves, her father used their free money to buy toys for the other kids in their community who were less fortunate than them. Her father's simple act of kindness was ingrained deeply in Rina's heart, and it also served as the inspiration for her to start donating toys.
In 1996, after emigrating to the United States and marrying her husband Jared, Rina decided to start her toy project with a budget of 10,000 USD.
She Only Wanted One Thing for Christmas: To Spend Time With Her Best Friend
This Christmas, can you give the best gift of all? The gift of TIME?
Once or perhaps a couple of times in our lives we came to the point of wishing that we could turn back time. Turn it back to those moments that we are not as busy as we are now, or that we still have time to spend for our loved ones. Growing up and going through life surely demands most of our time and attention that we may forget or neglect important people and events. However is it really that we just don't have the time, or we fail to make time for them?
While we don't hold it against our loved ones or our friends if they have to turn down our invitations for the nth time, or they forget the date again; sometimes there is that little part of us that wish things didn't have to change. Because sometimes those Facebook greetings we send to compensate, do not amount to our actual presence. Such is the story in this 3-minute short film of nostalgia and friendship.
Grab some tissues, for this one may turn on the waterworks!
He Was Walking by a Half-Frozen Lake, When He Saw Something that Made Him Jump!
Will you have jumped too if you were in his situation?
It seems like people are finding quite a lot of things from frozen lakes, such as the "alien eggs" in Utah. This time, two friends from Norway found something in the half-frozen lake that made one of them jump immediately.
Lars Jørun Langøien and Yngvil Søholt were strolling by and taking pictures, when Lars spotted a little duck waddling through the thin sheet of ice. The duck fell in the frigid waters and became trapped. Without second thoughts, Lars jumped after the duck for rescue. Never minding the frozen waters, Lars swam and scooped up the duck. It was unresponsive and Lars had to pump its heart, massage it and even give it resuscitation.
