Watch: Michelle Obama Reads ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’

By  | 

Earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama paid a visit to the patients of Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. to spread some holiday cheeck in a tradition that dates as far back as the 1950s.

Michelle, accompanied by First Dog, Bo, read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ to children. In the video, Bo hops onto Michelle’s lap right before she gets ready to start reading.

Watch her read below!
