BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — A generous mystery man has made the holiday season a little brighter for employees of two Massachusetts coffee shops.

A man wearing a cowboy hat walked into Marylou's in Hyannis on Saturday and handed the worker behind the counter 15 envelopes, each containing a crisp $100 bill.

Manager Victoria Grandy tells the Cape Cod Times (http://bit.ly/1zmGccs ) "MERRY CHRISTMAS" was printed in red on the front of each envelope.

Workers didn't recognize the man as a regular, but one employee said he resembled Santa Claus.

A man, believed to be the same person, but this time wearing a ball cap, on Monday handed over eight envelopes containing $100 bills to the workers at the Dunkin' Donuts at the Cape Cod Mall.

Those employees also didn't recognize him as a regular.
