OWING MILLS, Md. – Every holiday season when Santa comes to town, children and their parents line-up to meet the jolly big man – but one Maryland toddler wasn’t having it.

Kerry Spencer taught her son the sign for “help” in sign language. And during his photo with Santa – he made the sign.

“We taught our baby sign language. This is the sign for “help.” You’re welcome,” Spencer wrote.

Spencer tweeted out the hilarious photo on Tuesday and it has gone viral with over 5,800 retweets and over 22,900 likes, as of Saturday afternoon.

She went on to clear up the specific sign language variant he was taught.

“In baby sign you go with what they do. We showed him the ASL version and this is what he did,” she wrote on Twitter.

No word on if the little boy was able to let Saint Nick know what he wanted for Christmas before his parents rescued him.
