Newborns at this hospital on Christmas Day get the special stockings as a keepsake.

Some of the best Christmas gifts fit in stockings and babies born around the holidays are no exception.

That's why babies born at Magee-Women's Hospital at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center get special stockings if they're in the hospital on Christmas Day.

Parents spending their first Christmas at UPMC get the stockings and hand-knit red hats as keepsakes. Magee nurses have been organizing the event for several years, and they give away dozens of tiny hats each holiday season.
