Milwaukee — For passengers getting on the bus in Milwaukee recently, it felt like boarding a bus to crazy town. 

"I said what? This is a dream or something," one passenger said.

But it wasn't a dream. The drivers were real elves working for the real Secret Santa. Secret Santa is an anonymous, wealthy businessman who every year travels the country giving out $100, $200, sometimes $300 to random strangers. He usually finds his targets in thrift stores.

But this year, Secret Santa recruited some elves from the Milwaukee County Transit System to do at least some of his giving. He chose the Milwaukee drivers because they're always doing kind deeds, whether it's stopping the bus to fetch a pair of lost children's shoes, helping a turtle cross the street or rescuing a child out wandering alone. 

This Is Why Santa Says "Ho, Ho, Ho"

  This Is Why Santa Says Want to know why Santa says "ho, ho, ho"? We dug into the catchphrase's origins to find an answer—just in time for the jolly holiday season.The truth is simple: The catchphrase is "used to represent laughter," according to Merriam-Webster. So, when Santa utters "ho, ho, ho," he isn't actually saying anything—he's laughing! Now, you might be asking yourself why Santa doesn't simply say "ha, ha, ha" if he's having a chuckle.

There is a real culture of kindness, which Secret Santa said makes them the perfect accomplice.

"We're going to be on the biggest sleigh we've ever had. And the magic is going to be like gold dust flying across the city," Secret Santa said.

For the rest of the day, five different drivers gave out thousands of dollars worth of hundred dollar bills. No doubt the money was appreciated. 

But, as always, this was about so much more than money. What overwhelmed most people was the unconditional kindness. The drivers said it affected them almost as much as their passengers.

"It was a great experience. It's going to stick with me the rest of my life," one driver said.

"If you ever feel down, if you ever feel a little depressed, and you want to solve your problem, go out and do something kind for somebody – because when you do that, you're uplifting yourself," Secret Santa said.
