President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden surprise families at Children’s National Hospital on Christmas Eve

Children completing a Christmas Eve art project at Children’s National Hospital unexpectedly had a chance to show off their creations to President Joe Biden. The President joined First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, who was at the hospital to read a story to patients. The First Lady visits are an annual tradition that dates back more than 75 years to Bess Truman, who stopped by to see families who weren't able to spend their holidays at home. This year’s visit was the first time a President joined a First Lady for the holiday visit.
