First lady Michelle Obama reads “Twas the night before Christmas” to patients, families, and staff at Children’s National Health System in Washington, Monday, Dec. 15, 2014.

WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says Christmas pajamas may be on her list for Christmas.

The first lady visited hospitalized children on Monday and was asked by one patient whether she owns Christmas pajamas.

Mrs. Obama replied that she doesn't and said she may put that on her wish list.

She had told another child that she doesn't really have a long Christmas list because she basically has everything she needs.

Mrs. Obama's visit continues a 60-plus-year tradition by first ladies.

She toured the Children's National Health System hospital, read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" and introduced the children to Obama family dogs Bo and Sunny.
