REPLAY: On the first day of Christmas, Oliver gets a shock from Santa

SooToday's 12 Days of Christmas are back

For our sixth annual 12 Days of Christmas program, SooToday's Jasmyn Rowley is surprising community members across the city with gifts to brighten their holiday season. 

Long-time volunteers, exceptional teachers, friends, and neighbours, families who have had a difficult year, and people in our community who have experienced incredible loss are all included in the group of recipients for this year's 12 Days of Christmas Random Acts of Kindness program.

Check back each day for the next 12 days to see the uplifting surprises (and a few tears), all made possible by our generous sponsors.

For the first day of Christmas, SooToday cameras surprise Oliver, an extraordinary 90 year old who shovels driveways, brushes off cars, and mows the lawns of his neighbours throughout the year. 

A special thank you to our anonymous sponsor for making today's surprise possible.
