Santa makes early surprise visit to Georgia’s little good boys and girls

ATHENS, Ga. — Christmas came a few days early for a group of special children in Georgia.

Santa Claus visited Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens to spread a little cheer -- safely -- to the hospital’s newborn nursery, pediatric unit and neonatal intensive care unit.

Photos released by the hospital show the Big Man in Red wearing a mask and saying hello to the little boys and girls who will surely be getting some nice presents under the Christmas tree.

We wish them all a very merry Christmas!
