It's a lot easier to think of a name for someone who rebels against the holiday spirit — there's the Grinch, Scrooge, etc. — than it is to characterize people who epitomize its best, like the anonymous donor who left a gold coin in a Salvation Army kettle in upstate New York.

Salvation Army officials said that over 400 gold coins have been found in kettles over the past 30 years. [Source]
