With the holiday quickly approaching, WestJet has released its annual Christmas miracle video.

The video, which is made up of 12 flights that were broadcasted on Facebook Live, features Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a number of celebrity guests including Walk the Earth, Eugenie Bouchard, Aaron Sanchez, Peter Mansbridge, Aaron Pritchett, Jillian Harris and more as they surprise hundreds of WestJet guests.

This year’s touching video was inspired by the creative imaginations of children from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, as they shared their own ideas on what Christmas should be.

“WestJet creates holiday magic for Canadians every year. This year, we asked for help from youth from St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club,” said Richard Bartrem, WestJet Vice-President Marketing Communications in a statement.

“Christmas, through the eyes of a child, is magical and the children gave us wonderful inspiration for surprising our guests. The best part was that the children got to be present to witness their own miracle come to life.”

From cuddling with 40 adorable puppies at the Calgary International Airport to hanging out with Aaron Sanchez of the Toronto Blue Jays in a life-sized snow globe at Toronto Pearson International Airport, WestJet hosted 12 magical events over 12 consecutive days in 10 cities and one in-air flight.
