In a touching parody of The Night before Christmas, WestJet may have left a few holiday travellers believing in miracles.

While waiting in the boarding area for two Calgary-bound flights from the Toronto and Hamilton airports, passengers were invited to scan their boarding pass and talk with Santa via a video conference.

During the light-hearted conversations, Santa asked the passengers what they wanted for Christmas. Answers ranged from cell phones, to choo-choo trains, to big screen TVs, to socks and underwear.

Then the magic happened.

A team of WestJet elves based in Calgary hit the stores while the two flights were on route from Ontario to Calgary. They bought all the gifts the passengers had asked for.

When the airplanes arrived and passengers disembarked they were amazed to find the baggage area decorated as a winter wonderland.

Next the buzzer sounded and the passengers looked for their baggage to arrive on the carrousel.

What they saw though were dozens of wrapped presents flowing down the belt. Each was marked for a passenger, from Santa of course.

WestJet staff were also on hand serving Christmas treats.

Santa himself even arrived to personally deliver some of the gifts, much to the delight of the astonished passengers - young and old.
