A viral video on YouTube has brought smiles all over the world. The video, made by WestJet Airlines, shows a Santa making passengers' Christmas wishes come true.

The video starts with the passengers telling Santa Claus about their holiday wishes. The passengers think it's all out of fun and don't expect anything. However, unbeknownst to the passengers, a team of people affiliated with WestJet actually rush to stores and buy the wish-list products as the passengers fly to their destination.

Then, the plane lands, and the passengers go to baggage claim to retrieve their belongings, but they're in for a treat. As they wait eagerly, the lights change and snowflakes fill the room. The Santa Claus that they made their wishes to comes out, and down the runway comes gifts brought to them through the airport baggage claim--all the presents are boxed and personally addressed.

This gesture has almost all the passengers touched. Most of them have smiles and some even cry in joy.

On the Facebook page of WestJet, the family that got the big HD TV from Santa wrote, "We love our new tv! Thank you again Westjet! Started our Christmas off great and took a lot of weight off our shoulders. The video makes me cry all over again!"

They are not alone. The YouTube comments reflect the same sentiment from viewers. "whY AM I CRYING," asks DoodlesByAdzie. Harry Atkinson agreed, "Best video I have seen all term! Almost made me cry."

This five minute video has received more than 1.3 million views since it was uploaded on December 8th, 2013.
