KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Secret Santa helpers spread some holiday cheer along a street in Kailua Wednesday night.

Residents on Hele Street in Enchanted Lake awoke to find their mailboxes tied up with tinsel and decorated for the holidays.  The colorful creations continue down the street for more than a third of mile, 32 homes in all.

"I looked across the street and I saw my neighbor's mailbox over there decorated," said Kailua resident, Shirley Okumura. "I thought ‘Oh, how cool, they decorated their mailbox maybe I should do the same thing.' But then I noticed the next-door neighbor had theirs decorated. Then I look over there and theirs is decorated. And then I see something fluttering on my mailbox, and I come out and look, and lo and behold my mailbox is decorated."

Residents do not know who did this random act of Christmas kindness, but they want to say thank you.
