Oh, it’s Santa Claus in Orlando!

It started like any other Wednesday at BrightStart Orlando … and then Santa Claus showed up. But he didn’t come alone: With a full complement of elves from VNPEU Local 18 (the Valencia Nursing Program Elves Union ) the joy of the Christmas season reached every corner of the center.

“You can never have enough elves,” Santa told us.

Old St. Nick’s timing couldn’t have been better, as the center was celebrating the holiday season with pajama day, and the festive sleepwear was on fine display.

We were so happy to be joined by a number of our patient families to watch and enjoy the children spend time with Santa and open gifts.

Couldn’t be there? We’ve got you covered with our latest photo gallery. See how far you get without smiling.

Heads up: The last thing Santa said as he departed the Orlando center was: “I’m headed north.” Well, BrightStart Sanford just happens to be … north. Keep checking in – the forecast looks like more holiday fun!
