Patients, families and staff at the Alberta Children’s Hospital were treated to some early season’s greetings when St. Nick himself brought the festive spirit all the way from the snowy North Pole during his seventh annual holiday visit.
Accompanied by Mrs. Claus and his trusty four-legged sidekicks, the holly, jolly velvet-clad duo paraded around the hospital, spreading joy and cheer to the patients and families spending the holidays in hospital.
“Mrs. Claus and I look so forward to this special holiday visit,” said Santa Claus. “It’s our gift to the patients. Nothing makes our day more than seeing the smiles of the children and how their faces light up when they see us.”
