Random Acts of Christmas Kindness - Day 7
Every year, we drive 45 minutes to the town we go to church in. There is an amusement park there that goes all out decorating. And I mean ALL out. They have all sorts of fun things, and usually a game for the kids. A few years ago, the game was to look for and count the hidden lot-up Rudolph's. this year, the game was to find and list all the different lot-up Grinches and list what he was stealing and putting in his sack. Then you fill out an entry form with your answer and contact info and drop it in a box for a drawing.
But that's not the point. I got side tracked. They charge by the carload, so when we paid to get in, we also paid for the car behind us.
It didn't occur to us that, because this is a drive-through event, we wouldn't really be able to get away with doing this anonymously. When we got to the end, we went over to the gift shop and ginormous toy train display and the car behind us followed us to thank us. That is not at all why we did it - we weren't looking for thanks, but we just wished them Merry Christmas and went inside.
Always a fun tradition that the kids look forward to each year :)
Bonus for me - look what I found in the clearance bin in the gift shop! How could I NOT buy it??
