Why, yes, Virginia, there really IS a Santa Claus. Or multiple Santa Claus...es. CHRISTMAS MAGIC!
Some lucky layaway users have found themselves the beneficiaries of the kindness of strangers this holiday season as they've gone to pick up their items and discovered that Layaway Santas have completely paid off their packages.
Layaway Santas aren't new, but thanks to news reports about their generosity a few years ago, the practice has grown as holiday seasons have passed. While some Santas wish to remain anonymous, others come forward to explain why they were motivated to help out so many families during the holidays.
Take Greg Parody, a Florida financial planner who recently paid $20,000 toward the layaways of families at his local Wal-Mart.
