Kids at Fletcher Allen Talk With Santa Online

Santa made a surprise, early visit to kids at the Vermont Children's Hospital.
BURLINGTON, Vt. - Santa made a surprise, early visit to kids at the Vermont Children's Hospital.

Thursday was the day kids could be kids again. Jolly Old Saint Nick made a virtual visit to kids in the pediatric ICU and throughout the hospital.

Kids, some who couldn't even get out of bed, got to have a 2-way conversation with Santa who's still in the North Pole. The kids were even able to tell Santa what's on their Christmas list.

"The children might be very scared, not knowing what's going to happen, Jennifer Dawson, Child Life Specialist said. "For a minute they can forget about their illness or hospitalization and just be apart of this year's magic."

Thursday's Santa visit was sponsored by CISCO.
