Ocean-going research doesn't wait for holidays, so the science and ship crews take the holidays with them. On Christmas morning 2006, during an expedition to the East Pacific Rise, the crew found that presents had mysteriously appeared overnight under the tree. Did Santa and his elves find his way to the research vessel Atlantis in the middle of the Pacific Ocean?
