WESTOVER -

The Morgantown Mall held it's third annual Sensitive Santa on Sunday.

This is a special time reserved just for children with Autism or sensory problems. Santa's area has dimmed lighting and quieter surroundings.

"There's no people here and you know crowds are probably, well nobody likes crowd," said Sarah Shaffer. "We turn down the music, the staff are instructed to act in a calm manner most of the time. We ask the parents questions like should we use the flash, should we not, what do they want for Christmas. and then they get to go talk to Santa."

The mall offered free Santa photos and activities so the kids wouldn't have to wait in line.
