Kicker: An extravagant Christmas tip

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: A group of New Jersey residents made Christmas a little brighter for a waitress at an IHOP north of Newark. 

As a group of a dozen people were leaving their table, one of them handed the waitress, Alisha, an envelope.

She told WPIX tv that the envelope was heavy, and when she looked inside—it was full of cash. She thought this has to be a mistake!

ALISHA: Told the guy who gave me the money that he gave me too much money. And he said no, that’s for you. Merry Christmas!

The group left a tip of $1,200! 

An onlooker captured the moment on video and posted it to social media.

AUDIO: Oh, you’re gonna make me cry. Thank you!

Each person in the group gave $100. 

One of the men in that group said he hopes it will inspire others to give. After all, It is more blessed to give than to receive!
