    Christmas came early for dozens of shoppers on Long Island. 

    A secret Santa has paid every layaway tab at a Walmart in Uniondale, Newsday reported

    Shopper Vanessa Rodriguez said she was waiting in line at the store's layaway department Tuesday when she overheard a woman crying. It turned out that the woman was crying tears of joy because an anonymous donor had paid off her account.

    Rodriguez said that a few minutes later a cashier told everyone in line that the same donor had paid off all of their accounts. She said the shoppers were "surprised and happy but just so, so very grateful."

    Store officials did not release the dollar amount paid off or the number of customers helped.
