The holiday season is full of happy memories, but it can also be a time when people struggle to make ends meet. There's a lot of pressure to buy gifts for loved ones and throw lavish parties for friends, and, if we aren't careful, these stresses can turn December into one of the darkest months of the year.
It's during this time that the smallest, or biggest, acts of love and compassion can make a huge difference in someone's life. When we do our holiday shopping, a stranger giving us money is the last thing we expect to happen, right? For the past few Decembers, one man has travelled the country handing out $100 bills to those in need. This "Secret Santa" doesn't demand gratitude, but instead does this out of pure kindness. If that doesn't capture the spirit of the season, I don't know what does.
