Santa and his elves visit Children's of Alabama

Young patients at Children's of Alabama Hospital got a special visitor this Monday morning. "Jolly Old Saint Nick" spread Christmas cheer and put a lot of smiles on the faces of girls and boys.

Santa, along with his chief elf officer Piper Worthington, and famous performing elves Jingle and Jangle stopped by Children's of Alabama.

They shared some of their Elf Magic traditions and spent time with patients and their siblings. Everyone also had their chance to get a photo with Santa.

Santa says, there were lots of good little girls and boys this year.

"Just knowing that their little hearts are happy and give them a doll, an elf, from Elf Magic. We can do all sorts of things, even on a gloomy, rainy day like this that we can brighten things up," Santa said. "Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas."

Elf Magic has been bringing Christmas cheer to boys and girls across the country for fifty five years.
