Holiday magic and the spirit of giving brought Christmas to Children’s of Mississippi patients today. Gov. Phil Bryant, First Lady Deborah Bryant and another first couple - Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus - brought gifts galore to hospital inpatients, courtesy of St. Nick's helpers and the many Mississippians who donated toys to the state's only children's hospital.
