Anyone who works in the medical field has to deal with some pretty serious issues on an almost daily basis. It certainly requires a lot of mental toughness, but it also calls for having a sense of humor and being able to see the lighter side of things.
During the holidays, this sense of humor really comes out in force. It has to because no one, neither patients nor medical staff, actually want to be in the hospital over the holidays. Still, if you gotta be there, you may as well have some fun with it and help bring holiday cheer to an otherwise serious and often dreary setting. These 9 examples come from a number of different hospitals, showing that there's really nowhere that the Christmas spirit can't brighten up.
