They said a store employee and someone working security told them they had to leave if they planned to continue passing out gift cards.

A spokesperson for Walmart said a family member did ask an employee if they could pass out the gift cards and they were told no.

The spokesperson said the family wasn't told they had to leave.

As it turns out, Walmart said an assistant manager at the store was unsure of the store policy.

Walmart doesn't have an issue with a family passing out Walmart gift cards.

The Twichell family said they will continue their tradition of giving.
