Feel-good video of the day: A WestJet Christmas surprise

By: Simone Castello

I love a good viral video. From animals doing funny things to compilations of cute babies, there's nothing like a short, sweet video to make my heart smile. But every so often, a video surfaces that's so lovely, you can't help by be moved enough to cry. And that's what happened with a new Christmas video from WestJet, which, as I write this, has been viewed close to 14 million times on YouTube. And It was only posted on Dec. 8, 2013. Something about this video reminds me about the open scene from Love Actually. You know the one I'm referring to, right?. It also takes place at an airport... where the prime minister refers to the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport, and talks about the warm-fuzzy feeling that comes from watching people reconnect after a long absence? This video is sort of the same, in that you also leave with a warm-fuzzy feeling. The jist of it? A bunch of passengers from two airports in Toronto, who are waiting to board flights to Calgary, get to tell (WestJet) Santa what they want for Christmas. And unbeknownst to them, when they get to Calgary, Santa and his helpers are waiting to greet them. With presents. Watch and enjoy! [HTML1]
