It’s catch­ing on

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

I had just got off the bus in West Broad­way from a morn­ing down­town fin­ish­ing up my Christ­mas shop­ping. I was walking to­ward my apart­ment build­ing when this girl, who maybe was in her late teens or early 20s, jumped out of the car. I as­sumed that they were lost and she was go­ing to ask for di­rec­tions. Not so.

The girl handed me a $5 Tim’s gift card and wished me a Merry Christ­mas. She also handed an­other lady who was on the street a card and wished her a Merry Christ­mas.

I just want to thank this Santa’s lit­tle elf for mak­ing my day. I’ve never been a re­cip­i­ent of any random act of kind­ness be­fore. You ob­vi­ously know the “rea­son for the sea­son.”
