Santa Comes Through Big for Nine-Year-old ‘Obsessed’ With NPR

Santa made one California nine-year-old (yes, 9) NPR fan ecstatic this Christmas even sans sugar plum ferries or toys like Barbie.

The mother of the boy “obsessed in a good way” (her words) told NPR that Santa brought him a very exciting gift this year – a collection of signed glossies from NPR hosts and journalists. He was so excited about getting them the mom sent in photographs to NPR.

See the pictures and get a sense of the boy’s enthusiasm here. In a story on NPR’s website, the boy’s mom said her son’s enthusiasm is such that he prefers listening to the radio station rather than doing his homework (which he also apparently loves to do).

Indeed, a feel-good story of the season.
