Single mother asks for Christmas dinner with family

A single mother has made a desperate plea to spend Christmas with a family.

Autumn Mazzitelli posted an advert on Craigslist, asking families if she and her three-year-old son could join them for the festivities, the Daily Star newspaper reports.

She shared: "I wanted to eat with people, even if I did not know them. I was going to actively choose not to be alone.

"It's been non-stop messages of gratitude, love and people's stories. I expected, maybe, a couple of responses, but instead I have received hundreds of invitations."

The pair will now spend their Christmas with four different families.
