Every year around Christmas, NMR gets a little bit nicer. Our hearts grow two sizes, then we put our Santa hats on and go delivering presents to orphans. We mean delivering metaphorical gifts to metaphorical orphans, of course. But you get what we mean, right? We love this time of year and how good it makes everyone feel. That Westjet footage has put us in a sentimental sort of mood, and since we burned you with that orphan thing, please let us make it up to you by having us present the five most heartwarming Christmas miracles on YouTube.
Hopefully, watching these videos inspires you to spread a little good holiday cheer for someone less fortunate?
