because this might bring some people joy

It's officially Not Christmas Yet (because in my family, Christmas season does not start until after my birthday), but: Sensitive Santa is a thing where rooms are being set up where children with special needs, particularly autistic children, can get to visit with Santa in a quiet room with minimal unnecessary sensory inputs.

One of the kids mentioned in the article didn't want to sit on Santa's lap, so he and Santa played with toys on the floor.

They're also in talks to arrange a sign-language-proficient Santa for deaf children.
