Christmas spirit

My cousin and I were at King’s Restaurant on Sierra Drive on Dec. 24.

We had stopped there for breakfast before finishing our Christmas shopping. When we were finished, the manager came over to our table and told us that a “Secret Santa” had paid for our meals.

I have always said that the people living in Altoona are very giving and this act of kindness and generosity proves it.

I want to thank that Secret Santa for really making our day. My cousin is from California, and he said that you would not find something like that being done out there.

That is the nicest Christmas present I received this past year.

I am so proud to live in Altoona where the people really care.
