WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former President Barack Obama paid a visit to ill children at Children's National hospital in D.C. on Wednesday.

The former president was welcomed by the smiling faces of the staff as he walked in to surprise the young patients and their families.

In a Twitter post made by Children's National, Obama wore a Santa hat appearing to be a "stand-in Santa" baring gifts for the children.

Before he left he was treated to a rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” by staff members at one of the nursing stations.
