The patients dress up in costumes as travel throughout the hospital getting gifts, candy and trinkets. 

The goal of this event is to help pediatric patients feel like normal kids.

The goal is to increase the socialization between patients and caregivers and to give the children an opportunity to celebrate the holiday with their family and friends.
