“I like the spirit of Christmas,” postal worker Guy Lewis said.

San Jose resident Ute Squatritto was one of the people getting an unexpected delivery.  “It’s from my son to his girlfriend Amanda.  He was just telling her last night that it wasn’t going to be here for Christmas, so I think he’s going to be very happy.”

“I’m getting a good feeling just because people are smiling,” Lewis said.
