ATLANTA – Some on social media are calling it a Christmas miracle, but to those from Georgia it is no surprise.

On Sunday during the blackout at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A did what it always does: they showed up to help.

While it is notoriously known for being closed on Sunday, the fast-food giant turned on their fryers and delivered thousands of beloved chicken sandwiches to the stranded travelers at the airport.
