Santa Claus Makes An Early Stop

Santa Claus came early for one Green Country woman and she thinks her Santa may strike again. It happened while she was freezing cold, waiting in line for good deals on Black Friday. News On 6 anchor Jennifer Loren reports Shelly and her niece, Andrea, are making it a family tradition to stand in line early in the morning for Black Friday deals.

But this year, as they were waiting in line at Target, they say a married couple pulled up in a nice car and started joking around with them for standing out in the cold.

"They just strike up a conversation with us, 'Hey, how long have you all been out here?' and 'What's the good bargain? What is it that you're wanting?" said Shelly.

After a short conversation, the couple left. But, they returned later bearing gifts.

"And they hand me a bag with a portable DVD player in it, which was one of the things I was standing in line for and the one that they gave me was nicer than the one that I was going to purchase,” said Shelly.

Shelly says she was shocked at the couple's generosity, but says she has a feeling they've done this before and that they'll do it again.

"This is how he gives into the spirit of giving and reassures society that everyone out there is not all bad,” said Shelly.

And for her niece, Andrea, it was a holiday lesson learned.

"To know that people are out there like that. It just makes you feel safer. It's just great,” said Andrea.

Everyone is now calling the man the Black Friday Santa. We'll see if he does it again next year.
