Barack Obama surprised patients when he delivered gifts at a children’s hospital in Washington on Wednesday.

The former president wore a Santa hat and carried a sack of presents over his shoulder as he surprised patients and their parents at the hospital, Children’s National Health System, in the north-east part of the capital. He greeted them with a “ho, ho, ho!” and told them his reindeer were “stuck in some snow”, but he wanted to make sure he visited.

Obama chatted with patients in their rooms and stopped by several playrooms. He also recorded a video message for those he couldn’t visit.

The hospital tweeted that Obama “warmed our hallways and put smiles on everyone’s faces!”

1. This was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen....

... it brought tears to my eyes (I'm a sympathy crier anyway) when I saw the emotion of that young girl in bed who burst into tears when President Obama visited and hugged her.

2. Awesome Humanity at Play!

President Obama will ALWAYS be a great President and if it was election day today for two more years, Obama would WIN against the orange clown in the ORANGE house!

PRESIDENT Obama brought many smiles to many little girls and boys. Even the big elf's that worked behind the scenes. For being in his Mid 50s, his future will bring more smiles to many!
