Some people say Christmas is too commercial. They'll tell you it brings out the worst in our fellow humans. And maybe they're right to a point. But I think the holiday also brings out the best in people.

Case in point...the man that walked into a Vermont Walmart and paid off every single Christmas layaway in the store!

According to News Center Maine, the man's identity remains a mystery. They say Walmart customers in Derry, VT heard rumors about the man paying off layaways, but weren't certain until they visited the store themselves.

News Center Maine says Walmart officials confirmed the story, but declined to say exactly how much money the man spent. They say he did decline to leave his name.

Now isn't that the real spirit of Christmas; giving without receiving anything...not even recognition? Merry Christmas indeed.
