Air New Zealand gets into the Christmas spirit with a very special tree and some surprise gifts

Throughout winter, Air New Zealand, Host Sydney and Diaries Downunder created a few entertaining snow-related clips that played on the 'Meanwhile, in ...' meme. And the airline has continued that idea for Christmas by giving the children of Portobello on the Otago Peninsula a little surprise.

The clip was once again done by Host, but this one was shot by Two Bearded Men. 

Air New Zealand, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary next year and is celebrating with a few special stamps, also sent its Santa elves around the country over the last two days to surprise passengers on domestic flights with gifts. And the Air New Zealand Twitter Fairy is also feeling fairly generous. 

Speaking of airlines being generous, here's West Jet, they of last year's real-time giving fame, bringing a snowy Canadian holiday to the Dominican republic.
