Tom Hanks entered into the Christmas spirit on Saturday by paying for everyone’s lunch at a drive-thru In-N-Out Burger in California.

Hanks was photographed by fans eating alongside his wife Rita Wilson at the burger restaurant in Fontana, east of Los Angeles, where he “bought lunch for everyone,” according to a Twitter post from the Oak Park Elementary School.

Hanks paid for everyone in the drive-thru queue, ABC 7 confirmed, before jumping in his grey SUV.

Renee Chavez filmed Hanks outside the restaurant and posted it on Facebook, showing Hanks shaking hands with fans who ran up to the “Forrest Gump” actor to thank him.
