From a reader in Raleigh, North Carolina

Santa Claus is a small town in Indiana where Will Seaton, 25, recently proposed marriage to Ashley Schaus, 23. Ashley has a 15-year-old sister named Hannah who has Down syndrome, and Ashley told Will that if they became engaged, he'd have to marry two girls, because Hannah will likely be dependent on her. Can you guess what he did?

During a photoshoot near Ashley's home, Will got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Of course she said yes. Then he got down on one knee for a second time, and asked Hannah to be his Best Friend Forever. As you can see, Hannah started laughing, and then she cried happy tears along with everyone else. The wedding will be on Oct. 7. Hannah will be "Best Sister." During the ceremony, Will and Hannah will share best friend vows, and at the reception they will dance to Harry Nilsson's song, "Best Friend." So yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus, Indiana.
