Watch: Dad performs Christmas light magic to the delight of his toddler

There is nothing greater than a child’s laughter so it is no surprise that the world is LOVING this toddler’s reaction to his dads Christmas light magic


Danny Hayden seen holding his son, Bo, has brought joy to the world with this incredible video. Bo’s infectious laughter is making us all laugh out loud and smile along while watching the simple yet mesmerising act of switching off the Christmas lights with what appears to be magic.

Being adults, we know the trick isn’t actually magic and probably just someone flicking the light switch on and off but to Bo, it is the most exciting thing to happen leading up to Christmas day.

What is true magic though, is this video. We have watched it over and over, laughing and smiling more each time we hear that belly laugh.

What is the most magical thing you remember from your childhood around Christmas time? Ours was whenever Santa would show up at our houses during a family braai or lunch with a sack of gifts. Even though Santa always smelled vaguley familiar, the excitement of him being in our home was just too amazing to comprehend.

After all, they say Christmas is for the children and if you are able to spend the day with a child, the day will always be the very best it can be.

Watch Bo’s reaction to his dad’s magic below.
