*This time of year is always difficult for a lot of families trying to make their Christmas quotas with their children, but this year of economic downturn and mass unemployment is especially troublesome.

But Kansas City, Mo., is getting a little help from its Secret Santa.  According to the Associated Press, he’s already started overwhelming the city with love.

Santa comes out annually –also anonymously– and hits the streets with bundles of $100 bills in his pockets.  And if his pockets weren’t big enough, he has an elf along with him to help out.
