The little girl told Santa he'd have to share the cookies with his reindeer.

T'was the night before Christmas and Santa Claus was doing some last-minute shopping in a US department store - and he was 'cornered' by a little girl.

Video published to the Reddit forums shows the girl running up to a man who resembles Father Christmas and asking him questions.

Realising he's been mistaken for the jolly fellow, the unidentified man rolls with it, asking: "have you been a good girl this year?".
