Santa Visits Texas Children’s Hospital for Annual Tree Lighting
Texas Children’s Hospital’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony kicked off the season of joy with Santa and Mrs. Claus helping to light The Auxiliary Bridge Christmas tree. This year, the couple was accompanied by one of the elves who brought along toys for young patients.
St. John’s choir sang holiday carols as young patients danced along. Randy Wright, executive vice president of Texas Children’s Hospital, helped kick off the lighting ceremony as he instructed one little girl to close her eyes and wish really hard for the lights to appear. Within seconds, the lights magically turned on and the “ho ho ho” of Santa could be heard as he walked down the hospital hallways visiting children.
