Viral Video: Dad And Son Dress Up As Frozen's Elsa For Living Room Dance Party

When seeing how much his 4-year-old son, Dexter, loved "Frozen," Ørjan Burøe, a Norwegian comedian, purchased two Elsa costumes from Ebay, and the pair danced around the living room to "Let it Go."

The dad posted a video of the routine to social media with a caption that read "Mom is gone, no stress" and the video went viral. 

Burøe said, "It's important to teach children that you can do whatever you want to do and not put prejudice all over them. To my son, Elsa is a superhero." 

One commenter said, "This is so cool. Children like to play, like to dress up. Teach them that what you wear doesn't define your identity or sexuality. Clothes have no gender! You like it? Then just wear it." 

The post had also been shared by Kristen Bell who plays Anna in "Frozen." She captioned it: "Immediate. Tears. Everywhere. #mykindaguy" 

When we see, accept, and acknowledge our children and "let go" of who we want them to be, we gift them the freedom to love-themselves and courageously follow their bliss. And that is exactly what they are sent here to do.
