Icy pavements are no joke and can be quite dangerous in the depths of winter. Thankfully for a woman who slipped and fell on an frosty pavement in Watford, England, a car skidded to a halt next to her, and who should pop out of it but Santa Claus himself.

As you can watch in the video (above), Santa leapt out and jumped into action, rushing to aid the woman whose bags had also flown out of her hands. It was no easy task but ultimately the spirit of Christmas prevailed and both Santa and the woman moved away safely. Santa even put the woman’s hat back on for her as her hands were occupied.

The entire incident, which took place outside a Tesco supermarket, was captured by Dave Cordoza on his car’s dashcam and posted for the rest of us to share the goodness of the season.
