A young woman who dressed up as Santa Claus and walked round the streets of Beijing on Christmas Eve handing out gifts to those working into the small hours of the morning has made headlines across Chinese media for her kindness and generosity.
According to NetEase, the young lady identified only as being born after 1990 had prepared gloves, hats, scarves, toys and various other gifts before heading out into the night.
One Beijing resident who was paid a visit by the girl who Chinese media have imaginatively dubbed “Christmas Girl” was 106-year-old Wang Zhengrong who runs a stall selling shoe insoles outside the west gate of the Communication University of China. She gave him a hot meal and some bananas.
A while later, “Christmas Girl” paid a visit to a middle aged woman selling street food. Her four-year-old son named Xinyu tells the kind-hearted lady that he usually spends his evening with her mother together at her stand after he comes home from his kindergarten.
Later that evening, “Christmas Girl” was seen handing gifts to a couple at a mom-and-pop breakfast stall. They told reporters that they wake up early in the morning to prepare dough and soup before opening shop at 5 a.m. each morning.
On seeing a sanitation worker, “Christmas Girl” handed her a scarf and a hat. The sanitation worker told reporters that she has never received a Christmas gift before.
