Christmas came early this year for one disabled veteran.

Mike Hay, a part-time parking lot attendant in Norman, Oklahoma, received a huge holiday tip of $1,000 from a complete stranger.

"You take the good and the bad every day at any job," Hay said.

"I love this little part-time thing. It gets me away from the house. It keeps my wife happy."

The veteran plans to use the money to spread Christmas cheer by helping others.
