(WYFF/NBC News) A South Carolina teacher received an unexpected surprise from Santa earlier this week...a marriage proposal!
Traci Thompson, a science teacher at Rainbow Lake Middle School in Chesnee, was shocked when Santa arrived during a school assembly and dropped to one knee. The jolly old elf turned out to be her boyfriend, Chris Garrett, in disguise.
"I'm really exited. I'm happy. She's the girl, the girl of my dreams. Everything I want," Garrett said after Thompson said "yes."
