Santa takes to skies in hot air balloon in Japan

JAPAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Santa Claus is getting ready for his extremely busy schedule in the next few days.

Despite that, though, he took time out this weekend to deliver some early Christmas presents to children in Central Japan.

The jolly old elf decided against his reindeer and took off in a hot air balloon instead.

Three balloons took off carrying packages and candy for 200 children.

One boy said he was happy to get a gift from Santa, and that he woke up at 7:00 a.m. to wait for the balloon.

The event was organized by a hot air balloon club.
