The holidays can be a stressful time for families. We don't always have the funds we'd like to have to gift our friends and families the way we want to. That's where layaway comes in. It's a thing a lot of people use! And for the eight year in a row, a 'Secret Santa' paid off layaway bills for people right here in the Treasure Valley.

The anonymous man has been going to local Walmarts for years, spreading holiday cheer. He agreed to do an interview with KTVB as long as they didn't reveal his identity. He said he saves up all year just so he can surprise people here in the community with some Christmas cheer. He pays off thousands of dollars in layaway bills for families buying presents for their kids.

"The idea is to hopefully motivate other people who will see this interview to go out and do something for somebody else," he said. "They will get the feeling that I do Christmas morning."

That's what the holidays are all about.
