Santa Claus's Cable Car
   2014-12-24 14:51:05    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Qin Mei

While delivering gifts via chimney is what children expect from Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, this Father Christmas is challenging that tradition in the air.
在孩子们的心目中,圣诞老人总是在圣诞节前夜从烟囱里钻进屋里给他们送来礼物,但是这位圣诞老人却在空中挑战了这一传统。

An employee(员工) at the Shiniuzhai scenic area(景区) of Pingjiang county, Hunan Province, dressed(打扮) himself as Santa Claus(圣诞老人) on last Sunday and delivered gifts to(送礼物给...) tourists while hanging on(抓紧) cables.

While it may have been a promotional stunt(绝技) for the scenic spot, tourists have mostly been amazed and braved the high altitude to catch the presents.

Although there are no details on what the gifts are, the stunt has successfully injected(注入) more fun into the journey(旅程) for tourists(游客) who only expected a routine view from the scenic spot.
