For children in Micronesia, Santa comes each year bringing toys and other gifts for them, just like in other parts of the world. Well, almost just like in other parts of the world. For these islanders, Santa doesn't ride a sleigh; he rides a C-130 Hercules from Yokota Air Base, Japan, and wears a U.S. Air Force flight suit.
