I need you to tell what's going in the White House. [Inaudible] to get back. This is [Inaudible]. Hi.

And now, Dr. Biden, I think we're going to go have a seat. Oh, OK. And we're going to hear a Christmas story. OK. I guess I got to go take a seat, too. President Biden. All right, here we go. All right. I'll sit over here. Jill wants you to sit. I'm sure she does. She just said, "Hurry, sit." Thank you. OK. So you -- oh, you don't have to [Inaudible] [Inaudible] They don't -- they don't have to [Inaudible] OK, well, so how many of you know this? How many of you know Frozen, Olaf, and -- yes, probably, right? Most of you. All right, so this is "Olaf's Night Before Christmas." All right. Joe, have you read this before? I read it before I go to bed every night. He reads it along with his briefings. OK. All right. Now, most of this you probably already heard. It was the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Stockings were hung by the chimney but why have they gotten too wet? Were they left there to dry? All right, I know you guys know the answer. Why were the stockings there? Why? So Santa [Inaudible] So Santa could fill them. Yes, we have our stockings hung already. Elsa was sleeping all snug in her bed while glittering northern lights dance overhead. Anna snored softly while I counted sheep, settling myself for a cozy night's sleep. Went out on that fjord there arose such a clatter. I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window, I tumbled and roll. I pushed out the shutters and brrrr was it cold. A full moon, it was out, and it lit up the night while snow flurries made the world sparkling and white. So that's what you all are wishing for the snow. Then grabbing an icicle, what did I spy? Eight little Svens, flying high in the skies. The Svens pulled a sleigh. There was something inside, could Sven and his Kristoff be out for a ride? This instance of the version that we usually know. Straight to the castle the flying sled came while the man was a Kristoff calls out some strange names. Now, Dasher. Now, Dancer. Now, Prancer and Vixen. On, Comet. On, Cupid. On, Dancer and Blitzen. To the top of the turret and over the wall, now dash away, dash away all. He sounded so funny. Who was this big guy? What was the turret and how could Sven fly? And then with the ringing, I heard on the roof the thumping and bumping of each little hoof. Then from behind me, there came a strange sound, and the whole chimney shook as two feet hit the ground. His boots were all black and his pants were all red. But where was the rest of him? Where was his head? So who is it? Who? Liam? Santa. Santa. That's right. There he is. Then out of the fireplace, the man's face appeared. He had kind, crinkly eyes and a fluffy white beard. Kristoff he wasn't, this man smelled too nice. Like snowballs and cookies and Christmassy spice. He placed a large bag filled with gifts on the floor. Was a sale going on at old Oaken's big store? He brushed off his clothes, then began to unpack. Pausing for krumkake left out as a snack. So how many of you leave something out for Santa? OK, so what do you leave, what do you leave out for Santa? Cookies. Cookies, OK. Liam, what do you leave out for Santa? Cookies, sandwich, and [Inaudible]. Carrots? Oh, carrots. Because he share them with the reindeer, you think? Yeah. OK [Inaudible] Oh, that's a good idea, carrots, because we just -- Joe, we just leave out cookies and milk. We should leave out -- Well, Abdul had a good idea. What do you leave out? Abdul, what do you leave out? I leave out the same thing. The same thing? The cookies and the milk? Yeah, and some of the times I eat the chocolate cookies. I think that's what everybody does, too, right, they -- they eat some of the cookies. All right. OK. This stranger had presents for Anna and Sven, for Kristoff, for Elsa, for all of my friends. I reach for his coat and gave two little tugs, and said, "My name is Olaf, and I like warm hugs." So, I'm sure we all like warm hugs, right? And we can't wait to get back to hugging one another. He turned with a start, let -- then let out such a giggle. I had to laugh, too, when I saw how he jiggle. He gave me a hug. Such a wonderful gift. Then he rose up the chimney, all lively and swift. OK. Come on, CJ. Come on up. You read the last couple of pages. Here, look. Here. Go ahead, turn towards them so you can -- here we go. And I heard him call out as he pull out of sight. Merry Christmas to all and to all [Inaudible] The end. All right. Thank you. Thank you. Well, thank you all for being here for the -- for the Christmas story, and -- For letting us come. And letting us come and visit you. So, we're hoping -- you know, we're wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy holiday, but most of all, health, good health in the new year to all of you kids and to your parents and your families. This time, you know, we spend a lot of time at Children's Hospital. We did. In Philadelphia, at the big Children's Hospital. And our little daughter, when she was born, she got to spend some time there, and they fixed her all up, and they did wonderful. Yeah. And then she moved back and she was riding a horse [Inaudible] and she got hurt, and they fixed her up again. [Inaudible] has create -- created the best doctors and nurses in the world. Yes. Why don't we all give the nurses and doctors a hand? Yes. OK. I got one question for you all. Oh. How many of you want to be a doctor? Oh, Victoria does. Victoria. How many of you want to be a nurse? Well, I tell you what, that's great. And what are some of the others of you want to do? What do you want to be? Liam, what do you want to be? A chef. A chef. I love that. A chef. All right.

I love -- I love these goals. Abdul? A doctor and a toymaker. Abdul, a toymaker. All right [Inaudible] You'll make a lot of people happy, right? Well, Dr. Biden and President Biden, thank you so much for being with us today. You know, this would have been -- or this is our 150th birthday. Is that right? All that -- all of that time, all of the first lady visits we've had, we've never done it on Christmas Eve and we've never had a president come with the first lady. So, I think this is a new tradition, and we hope you'll come back next year. [Inaudible] [Inaudible] [Inaudible] next year. I hope some of you guys come back when we come back next year as guests. Yes. There you go. We'll talk about how you were here and how you got fixed up and everything was OK. That's awesome. And the -- Thank you. Charlie is in school [Inaudible] That's so awesome.
