Every year, families spend the holidays at Children’s Hospital Boston, and every year Children’s works hard to bring a little bit of home to the hospital so the holidays can feel as normal as possible. This year has been no exception, with trick or treating on Halloween, home-cooked meals on Thanksgiving and celebrations of Hanukkah, Christmas and Dawali (more on those celebrations tomorrow on Thrive). Yesterday, our patients even had a chance to chat virtually with Santa Claus thanks to a great annual program by the Cisco Systems. Check out the media coverage of the event, with stories by Reuters, Boston’s WHDH TV station and the IDG News Service. Also check out more pictures from the event in this photo gallery.
