It was a magical surprise for one Fort St. John family just ahead of Christmas.
Lisa Bigstone, her fiancé Kyle Roberts and daughters Natalee and Kyla got a surprise visit from Santa and several elves ahead of schedule.
Bigstone says her fiancé opened the door Monday afternoon to a few people dressed as the jolly fellow and his workers. They gave the family several gifts, including food for Christmas dinner, household items like laundry detergent and gifts for the children, all addressed to them.
Although she says her family never found out where Santa and the elves came from, they were certainly thankful for the gifts.
She says the generous gesture came as a shock but has reminded her family of the true meaning of Christmas.
