Happy Holidays! Did Santa bring light to your happy event on his sleigh? Look at this Santa Airbus, which was "pulled" by reindeer and is just too festive to pass up. Emirates, the official airline of the United Arab Emirates, put a festive spin on things by turning one of its passenger jets into Santa's sleigh.

It’s time for “Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way, ‘Captain’ Claus is coming around driving on a sleigh."

Emirates posted the video of its A380 airbus being raised off the ground by reindeer while "wearing" a Santa hat. The enchanted scene resembled a contemporary sleigh where a human was substituted by technology. The jet was turned into a holiday monster thanks to the visual effects work of Dubai-based video artist Mostafa Eldiasty.

“Captain Claus, requesting permission for take-off. Merry Christmas from Emirates,” read the caption of the Gulf airline that posted the video on Instagram.

In the meanwhile, Eldiasty and Emirates have worked together before. An earlier masterpiece by the video's maker showed an Emirates jet simulating a bird before landing by fluttering its wings. Even Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai, reposted the video.
