This is a great story how Continental Airlines is helping hospitalized kids in Cleveland.

They arrange a flight for them to the North Pole.

“Once they were buckled in -- and the shades drawn so the lights couldn't hurt the reindeers' eyes -- the engines of the 737 roared.

Fifteen minutes later, they arrived.

Lollipops the size of mail boxes lined a white-cotton path of snow through the North Pole terminal (that looked strikingly similar to Continental's Gate 20 in Cleveland).

Christmas trees decorated with toys.

And a white-painted throne with red velvet cushions for the man of the night -- Santa.

It was a child's fantasy and many parents' dream.”

I agree Father, but I suspect that many of these kiddies are not even Christians
