Inn Celebrates ‘Christmas in July’
On July 22, Santa Claus and his motorcycle elves from the Montgomery County Police Department and the NIH Police made their way to the Children’s Inn at NIH to take part in the annual Christmas in July celebration.
Despite soaring temperatures, Santa dressed in his customary faux-fur-trimmed outfit and was greeted by snow (albeit manufactured via machine), Christmas carols on the loudspeaker and a cluster of elves ready to greet him and help hand out gifts.
After visiting with the crowd and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas in July, Santa sat in a rocking chair on the playground and began calling families up to receive personalized gift bags donated by inn supporters.
