Topics: From the Wires, ,

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is spreading holiday cheer at Washington’s leading children’s hospital.

The first lady visited privately with patients and staff at Children’s National Health System before coming to the atrium to read “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” to another group of children.

For added cheers, she brought along family dogs Bo and Sunny.

With the appearance, Mrs. Obama continued a first lady tradition that began decades ago with Bess Truman.
