HURRICANE, W. Va. (WCMH) – If you see a man with a white beard and a red shirt in December, he must be Santa Claus, right?

Sophie Jo Riley encountered ‘Santa' at a Walmart in Hurricane, West Virginia, or so she thought.

She saw Roger Larck's white beard and red shirt and started up a conversation with ‘Santa'

Larck played along as Riley's mother recorded with her phone.

The pair talked about her Christmas tree and how she would leave cookies for him.

As one might imagine, the video of the conversation has gone viral.
