ATLANTA — A children’s hospital in Atlanta gave patients a special surprise for the holidays.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta teamed up with a special effects company that works with Disney to simulate a winter wonderland on its three campuses, My Fox Atlanta reported.

“On a 57-degree day in a city that rarely sees snow in its weather forecast, dozens of kids — many of them tethered to I.V. poles and wearing surgical masks — caught their first snowflakes, made their first snow angels and, for a few brief minutes, traded the title of ‘patient’ for ‘kid,'” says the video’s YouTube description.
