WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Some sick Florida children got a visit from Santa Claus six months early.

The Christmas in July celebration at Palm Beach Children's Hospital in West Palm Beach brought the visit from Santa, who came bearing smiles, hugs and presents.

The Palm Beach Post ( ) reports he went room to room, passing out wrapped gifts including teddy bears, basketballs, gift cards and dolls that were donated at toy drives.

The patients got a taste of winter in the hospital courtyard, where fake snow was blown into the air.
