The wait to see Santa and take a photo can be long and boring--and it all proved too much for one small visitor, who fell asleep while still in line, according to Daily Mirror.
When it was the sleeping child's turn, Santa suggested the parents leave him as is, and this photo of Santa snoozing with the boy was the adorable result.
Santa is reclined with a book open next to him, while the boy sprawled across him in slumber helps paint the perfect, peaceful Christmas picture.
While waiting in line to see Santa, this baby fell asleep. When it came time for the picture, Santa told the parents not to wake him.
The image has gone viral with over 800,000 views since being posted on Imgur, attracting comments such as, "Can we take a moment to appreciate that this is probably the best mall Santa ever?"
