A woman hopped aboard buses, greeted passengers with "Merry Christmas" and handed each an envelope containing a card and a $50 bill before stepping off and repeating the process on another bus.

How cool! We got a really great anonymous gift in the mail yesterday, and it just felt amazing.

Once when I was on my own with three young children and didn't know what I was going to do about their Christmas, I opened my front door one morning and found a large box full of gifts for them. I never knew who did that. It was wonderful! Yes, I believe in Santa.

I guess I'm getting too cynical. I kept waiting for someone on a bus she already visited to mug her and steal the cards she hadnít distributed yet.
