This grandmother's childhood wish came true when she finally got the chance to meet Santa Claus.

Reddit user shawnwasim shared this ridiculously cute picture of his grandmother posing with Santa at the local mall. It was her childhood wish to celebrate Christmas.

His grandmother was born in an area which eventually became Pakistan, shawnwasim wrote on Reddit, adding that some Christian families did celebrate the holiday, but not in a grandiose way.

"There were Christian families who celebrated Christmas there but it was pretty hidden and not nearly as festive as the ones in Christian-majority countries like the US. She told me she would always watch Christmas cartoons (the one with the mouse who stays up all night for Santa on Christmas eve but falls asleep right before Santa shows up) and movies with the trees and snowfall and dreamed about living it some day."

So he and his family took his grandmother to a mall to meet Santa for the first time and by looking at her picture, you can tell she was thrilled.

While shawnwasim mentioned he wasn't Christian, he said he understood the love for the holiday.

"I'm not even a Christian and Christmas is my favorite holiday!"

We hope his grandmother gets to fulfill every Christmas wish on her list.
