Over the weekend, babies at Wellstar Health System’s Atlanta hospitals were dressed in festive holiday attire to celebrate the Christmas season.

The neonatal intensive care unit team didn’t want babies in the NICU to miss out on the fun and magic of the holidays, so they “brought the holiday spirit to them and their families.”

As they posed in front of a Christmas tree with Santa, some of the tiny patients were dressed as Santa’s helpers, some as tiny gifts wrapped in stockings, some in Christmas colors and some as the jolly old man himself.
