Babies Are Sent Home In Christmas Stockings And It's Insanely Adorable

Holiday cuteness alert.

Posted on

Babies born around Christmas get a special surprise from some hospitals around the U.S., where they get wrapped up in stockings after being born.

Like little presents!

Tots born at Magee-Women's Hospital at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center get special stockings and also are given hand-knit hats, ABC News reported.

Nurses at the hospital give away dozens of the little hats each season, and spend weeks organizing the Christmas Day event.

Community volunteers have helped to make the stockings for babies at California's Redlands Community Hospital since 1930, though the tradition had a lapse before being revived in 2005.

Last year, 16 volunteers made 250 fleece stockings over the course of one day.

Long Beach Memorial Medical Center has also had the ridiculously cute tradition for over half a century.

Welcome to the world, Christmas babies!
