After a hilarious mishap with a complete stranger in the Wawa gas station parking lot, mommy blogger Mary Katherine Backstrom is trying to tell everyone her funny story for Christmas. But she’s got to stop giggling first. And even if you don’t laugh at her story itself, good luck keeping a straight face while watching her reaction!
I think we can all agree that there’s something special about the Christmas season. Celebrating the birth of Jesus has a way of reminding us all — even those who aren’t religious — of how much good still exists in the world.
Just as the lyrics in Frank Sinatra’s Christmas Waltz say, “It’s that time of year when the world falls in love.”

So as Mary then went into the Wawa gas station, she was “just in this place” of wanting to surprise someone with an act of kindness.
She got her chance when a woman behind her got in line to buy a Gingerale.
Mary Katherine Backstrom paid for the woman’s drink and shared how the Christmas season had inspired her act of kindness. She describes it as a “precious moment” between her and this stranger.
