Twas the night before Christmas, and the passangers had landed.

And to they amazement, found they'd been "Santa'd".

What to their wondering eyes should appear...but gaily wrapped packages instead of their traveling gear.

That's because on Christmas Eve, Spanair Airways gave each of their passengers a special present on the last flight of the evening.

Upon claiming their personal belongings, each passenger received a custom-made present from Spanair.

Each passenger found one gift with his or her name on it: a teddy bear for a toddler, an underwater camera for a couple going on vacation, and so on.

Spanair's marketing department filmed the customers smiling, hugging and finally clapping. They slapped some music over it and uploaded it to sites like Youtube and Twitter.

One Scrooge suggested that this raises too high expectations for future Spanair flyers.

For the record, Spanair is not going to give out birthday presents. Or cakes. But on the success of its video, the airline said that it is promising more surprises.
