It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Santa!
Skydiving has become quite a trend over the years. It is a very popular sport among people around the world, of all ages. It is a great past time, and people enjoy it for various reasons. But, something bizarre, yet amazingly beautiful happened last week concerning the extreme sport: “It’s a bird, it’s a plane…” No, it’s Santa! That’s right. Jolly ole Saint Nick ditched his reindeer and sleigh for skydiving! But, Santa wasn’t just seeking a thrill, however, he did want to bring happiness to someone else.
In a small village in the Italian town of Amatrice, Enrico Marcucci and eight other professional skydivers delivered Christmas gifts and treats to the children there. Marcucci was dressed as Santa Claus. The nine extremely benevolent gentlemen are members of Italy’s National Parachute Association, which is headquartered in Terni. They wanted to do something special for the people there because of the city’s most recent ordeal. So they dove into the village on a mission of goodwill.
On August 24, 2016, a devastating earthquake hit the area of Amatrice. Over 300 people were killed and thousands were left homeless. Many of the citizens there have been placed in temporary housing. Some of them have to live in tents. As one would imagine, this is an awful time for the citizens in this small town of Italy. However, the good thing is, the children there, were allowed to experience the true meaning of Christmas through this calamity. They were excited to receive the Christmas presents, and startled, yet overjoyed to witness Santa Claus descending from the skies. The gifts weren’t the only things that citizens received. The gentlemen also donated a total of 3000 euros for the reconstruction of the schools and the nursery in the area.
