(Dec. 22, 2014) – Now that they think about it, there may have been something familiar about Santa Claus before he revealed his true identity.

Two sisters thought they were making a routine visit to Old St. Nick at a Texas school recently, reports KTLA. They were shocked when Santa took off his beard and hat to reveal their father, a soldier who was home for the first time in 10 months.

Orlanda Vasquez had just returned home from Germany when he came up with the idea. He said he’d flown in the night before and thought it would be a good surprise.

Video of the reunion shows the girls giving their Christmas wish list to Santa.

“Kyra said, ‘Dear Santa, I can’t wait till Christmas because it’s my favorite holiday and sometimes you make our wish come true. My number one wish is for my dad to come home from Germany,’” Vasquez recalled.

He then revealed himself for the touching family reunion.
