PHOENIX - Fans of a popular Christmas movie took a plane ride south much to the delight of many passengers.

The Minnesota couple flew from Minneapolis to Phoenix on Christmas Day to visit family. They dressed up as characters from Will Ferrell's 2003 comedy "Elf."

"Little kids were looking at us and taking pictures with us," said Mike Cather.

He said that he and his wife Mikaela received a lot of Merry Christmases.

"It was pretty neat."

He says they believe that this will be the start of a tradition.
