This time of year can bring out the best or the worst in people. For some, all they think about is all they need to do before Christmas. They can cut people off from traffic or be aggressive and rude to people working in the service industry. When we are operating at 1 million miles per minute, it can be difficult to be the best versions of ourselves. But as the great Ferris Bueller once said:
“Life goes pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around every now and then, you might miss it.”
I think about this quote all the time but especially during the holiday season. If you don’t slow down and take it all in, what’s the point?
Kristen Avioli Bonito took to the Nice people from Newburyport Facebook page to share the story of a stranger who summed up what this time of year is through an act of kindness.
“Thanks to the amazing human who paid for $ 300 worth of coffee / drinks sold at Battleground Coffee this morning!” Customers who came after you, including me, are very grateful! You are one of a kind â¤ï¸ Happy Holidays everyone! “
History and photography have captured the hearts of many. Likes and comments are still pouring in!

“Unbelievable! Yes, there are some nice people there!”
Hope this story inspired you to do something nice for someone today. It doesn’t have to be up to $ 200, but you never know the impact a little act of kindness can have.
