Clad in a Santa hat and carrying a bag full of toys over his shoulder, former President Barack Obama visited children and their families today at the Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C., to spread some holiday cheer.
"Ho Ho Ho ... Merry Christmas!" Obama said as he entered, shocking hospital staff and patients.
"My reindeer they were stuck in some snow," he added. "But I just wanted to make sure that I made the trip and I had a chance to see all of you guys."
Obama greeted patients in their rooms and in some of the facilities' playrooms, handing out holiday presents that he and his staff had collected, according to a statement from his office.
