Holiday travel is awful.

You're lugging around a bulky coat. The lines at the airport are unbearable. And there's always someone insufferable on your plane (and, usually, sitting right next to you).

Santa asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas – only to find their presents coming down the baggage shoot when they arrived at their destination.

Plus: Another video that will make you weep, more that will make you laugh, the trailer for the Dr. Who Christmas special, and more of the most important random things online.
