Santa Claus’ jolly laughter could be heard throughout the 11th floor of Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital as he visited with patients the week before Christmas.

Santa brought along a bag filled with special sleigh bells to give as gifts to the children.

“Do you know where this sleigh bell came from?” Santa asked 7-year-old Jordyn Williams.

“It was on my sleigh last year and this very bell helped us travel all around the world in one night,” he explained. “Elves made these bells and they put magic in them to help my reindeers fly my sleigh. It still has some magic left inside of it.”

Santa told Jordyn to hold the bell tightly in her hand and close her eyes.

“Picture in your mind what it is you want. As you picture it, it will get closer and closer to you. Keep doing that until what you want is right in front of you. But, you’re going to have to pay for that bell,” Santa said. “You’re going to have to give me a hug.”

Jordyn gave Santa a big hug.
