USPS 'Santa' makes surprise deliveries on Christmas morning

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

One postal worker has his own tradition on Christmas, picking up Santa's unfinished work.

Lyndon Huston has been a United States Postal Service worker for the past 15 years. And he said he's been volunteering to deliver Express Mail on Christmas morning about as long.

He even goes the extra mile with a Santa suit, beard and the requisite greeting.

He said he does it for reactions like these.

"They just woke up and came down the stairs and we still had one sleepy head. And we were just ready to start our Christmas," said Clint Curtis.

"Ahhh… I was surprised," his daughter said. "I wasn't expecting Santa to come into the door."

Almost everyone was surprised and happy to see Huston Wednesday morning.

He plans on continuing his Christmas tradition for years to come.
