Created: 12/13/2013 12:48 PM WHEC.com

Layaway Santas are spreading holiday cheer this year.  
 
Walmart has tracked more than 1,000 instances of strangers, sometimes called Christmas angels, paying off someone else's layaway account so far this season.
 
Kmart reports more than $1.5-million in stranger payments over the years and Toys R Us recorded nearly 800 last year.  
 
Today is the deadline for final payments for Walmart's holiday layaway program and managers say that brings out a lot of layaway Santas.
