The new McDonald's Christmas ad is actually really adorable

A sweet daddy-daughter duo taking a well-earned break from Christmas shopping with a little trip to McDonald's.

That's how the fast-food chain kicks off this year's Christmas ad – and it doesn't disappoint.

Clutching her carrot that she got in her Happy Meal all the way home – to have something to leave out for Santa's reindeer, of course, the little girl's plan soon comes crashing down when her big brother reminds her Santa arrives with more than just the one reindeer in tow.

Cue – dad does what all good dads would do, of course. He makes the journey back to their local McDonald's to get an entire bag of carrot sticks – to make sure there is a piece for every one of Santa's four-legged helpers.

The only hiccup in the dad's plan? Well, it seems Santa's isn't really all that into cheeseburgers...

Bless.
