The Christmas season is a special time of year for everyone. It doesn't matter if you're rich, poor, surrounded by loved ones, or alone, this time of year. There's something in the very air that seems to fall down with the snow which makes the magic we all talk about seem real, for just a few weeks.
It may be the weather, but I think it's actually about the people who go out of their way to make this time of year easier for those who may be struggling with the added pressure. In recent years, several people have gone above and beyond to restore everyone's faith in the Christmas spirit and humanity overall.
During the holidays, many stores allow people to put a deposit on several items that they want to purchase, and pay at a later date. This is so that they still have a chance to buy the items, even if they don't have the funds to pick them up now.
Most often, people take advantage of the Black Friday sales after Thanksgiving Day to save money on their holiday purchases, returning in the following weeks in order to pay off their tab. Even still, it is especially hard for parents to pay for everything they want to get their kids, and any act of charity means the world to them.
So instead of donating to a specific charity, some philanthropists have been dropping into stores and lifting the burden of Christmas shopping from those less fortunate than themselves.
Every little bit helps, but shoppers were blown away by what these people did for them and their families.
