On Saturday, during a particularly slow time at the Vancouver airport, a local band and a dance troupe donned their Christmas finest and broke out into the classic holiday tune, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" in the middle of the airport.
The event, sponsored by Air Canada, was meant to spread the holiday spirit on the first heavy day of holiday travel in Vancouver. An Air Canada employee is the lead singer of Abandon Paris, a popular local band who performed during the 2010 Winter Olympics, also held in Vancouver. The dancers were supplied by The Arts Umbrella Dance Company, a preeminent arts organization in Vancouver.
The holiday cheer is immensely different from airports in Europe, which are facing unbelievable cancellations and thousands of angry travelers.
If this doesn't get you in the holiday spirit, nothing will!
