RALEIGH — If you've found yourself complaining duringthis holiday season, imagine having to spend it in the hospital, andyou'll probably feel better. Friday, Raleigh firefighters tried tospread a little cheer among the burn patients at the Jaycee Burn Center atUNC Hospitals.

The firefighters delivered stockings stuffed with toys, candy and more,and chipped in nearly $1,000 dollars to make it all possible.

Meanwhile, in Fayetteville, officers also played Santa Friday, joining the jolly old man himself, passing out gifts to children at Cape FearMedical Center.

Young patients there spent the afternoon working puzzles and readingbooks, but a sackful of huggable teddy bears were in high demand.
