The miracles, as it has now been revealed, were inspired by children’s ideas and brought to life at various airports across the country.From cuddling with 40 puppies (and one cat) at the Calgary International Airport, to a world made of gingerbread at the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, to the Nutcracker performed at the arrivals area in the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, to a life-sized snow globe at Toronto Pearson International Airport, 12 events were held on 12 consecutive days in 10 cities and one in-air flight.More news:  AMResorts has a new Sr. Dir. of Cdn.

This year, we asked for help from youth from St. Alban’sBoys and Girls Club,” said Richard Bartrem, WestJet Vice-President Marketing Communications. “Christmas, through the eyes of a child, is magical and the children gave us wonderful inspiration for surprising our guests.
