Santa Claus came early to Vermont.

A mystery man paid off every single Christmas gift on layaway at Walmart in the town of Derby.

Walmart wouldn’t say how much he spent, or how many people’s gifts he paid for.

Shoppers said the act of kindness means more than just gifts during the holiday season.

One shopper, Julie Gates said, “He came up to the guy in front of me and said, ‘Either I’m going to pay for it now or I’m going to pay for it later.'” And she continued, “This can’t be, who can just afford to pay for everyone’s layaway? And he said, ‘Santa Claus can.'”

Another shopper the the layaway line, Tammy Desautels commented, “Kinda surreal when they said no balance due or whatever, and then it was really a reality. I really have a feeling that there’s hope for mankind or whatever, you know? There are still good people out there.”

After all was said and done “I get goosebumps thinking that that is the true magic of Christmas, the Christmas spirit walking amongst us.”

No word on whether the man had a beard or lived at the North Pole.
